When a child contract malaria, they have little time to find anti-malaria treatment before death - often within 24 hours. Nearly half a million people die across the world each year due to malaria, with most of these fatalities young children whose lives could have been saved. Malaria remains an acute public health problem in many regions. In 2015 alone, there were 214 million new cases of malaria reported worldwide. Indonesia was once a nation suffering from a record level of malaria infections, but has managed to eradicate most indigenous cases of the disease in recent years. UNICEF's assistance in Indonesia has proven that their model of effective malaria treatment can be used across the region. This gift provides one malaria tablet for a child in a malaria-prone rural area of Indonesia, so that they can immunised from this disease of poverty.
This gift supports communities in Indonesia and costs 390 points on JellyChip.
