Malaria No More is a nonprofit organization that aims to end death caused by malaria in Africa by 2015. Malaria No More is known for its participation in the Idol Gives Back charity specials.[1]

History[edit]

Malaria No More was established in December 2006 by Peter Chernin and Raymond G. Chambers.[2][3] Entrepreneur and co-founder of Priceline.com Scott Case is the vice-chairman at Malaria No More since 2006.[2] The nonprofit organization has a global network of affiliate organizations in other countries such as Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Japan.[4] This allows for the local advocacy to rally public support and work with other grassroots groups such as the Mosquitoes Suck Tour to inspire students to get involved.[5]

Other organizations, such as Malaria No More continue distribution of more broad-based prophylaxis in Africa.[citation needed]

The organization has announced tentative plans to close in 2015, based on the progress which had been made in its mission by 2011.[6]
