A malaria net is the most effective means of prevention for malaria. At just £2.70 a net the small 1%Network raised enough for 610 Malaria Nets helping protect some 1,140 people. Against Malaria use 100% of the money to buy nets and work with distribution partners to ensure they are used. They then monitor and report malaria case data. Its estimated that for every 20 nets distributed a human life will be saved.

The Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) is GiveWellGiving What We Can and The Life You Can Save’s top-ranked charity and has been for twelve  years. AMF is frequently described as the global Effective Altruism movement’s #1 charity given the top-billing it achieves year after year judged on impact and effectiveness. AMF’s running costs (which are small as a result of the extraordinary efficiency with which AMF operates, and which are ~1% of revenues each year) are funded independently meaning 100% of public donations buys nets. Nets are distributed though carefully selected partner organisations with high levels of data-driven accountability and transparency accompanying each net distribution. Be One Percent’s donations to AMF, and the specific net distributions they fund, are shown here. Donations welcome!
