Nigeria Grammy award winners have joined the stellar cast of international change-makers turning pressure against the fight against malaria, the second chapter of the multi-award-winning Draw the Line Against Malaria campaign to be launched today.

In a world still reeling from the far-reaching impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, with global health security and pandemic preparedness remaining at the top of world leaders’ agendas, the next chapter of the campaign aims to turn up the pressure on world leaders to commit to ending malaria at the Kigali Summit and investing funds totaling US$18 billion at the Global Fund’s Seventh Replenishment in New York this Autumn.

A fully replenished Global Fund is projected to enable countries and partners to reduce malaria deaths by 62 percent, treat 550 million malaria cases, and eliminate malaria from six more countries by 2026, as well as unlock the potential of a Zero Malaria world, helping to strengthen equitable health systems and improve the lives and futures of millions of people.

Backed by the RBM Partnership to End Malaria, the second phase of Draw the Line is fronted by a stellar cast of young people, activists, scientists, and stars from Malaria No More UK Leadership Council founding member David Beckham and FC Barcelona striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, to marathon world record-holder Eliud Kipchoge and Afropop singer Yemi Alade.
