The UK remains strongly committed to tackling malaria.

That is why the Prime Minister committed in 2008 to provide over 20 million bednets by the end of 2010, to help prevent 110,000 child deaths, and our 2009 White Paper committed to provide an additional 10 million bednets each year to 2013.

By the end of 2009, we had provided over 14 million bednets, preventing over 80,000 child deaths.
