How is The United Methodist Church working to eradicate diseases like malaria?
In 2008, Global Health was affirmed as one of the Four Areas of Focus for The United Methodist Church. The overall objective of the church's Global Health Initiative is to eliminate diseases of poverty worldwide, which includes malaria, AIDS/HIV and tuberculosis.
Currently, The United Methodist Church is fully engaged with our partners, including the United Nations Foundation (UNF) and the Global Fund for AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, to win the fight against malaria.
Overcoming malaria will require educating communities and health care workers, developing health care infrastructure and making advancements in health care communications along with net distributions. Imagine No Malaria is the United Methodist church-wide effort to create a powerful foundation that will build a stronger broad-based community health infrastructure to help fight against diseases of poverty.
Thanks to the dedication of The United Methodist Church and our partners, thousands of people will be alive in the coming years that might otherwise have fallen victim to malaria.
