What would a world without malaria look like?
Visualize No Malaria
A partnership with PATH, the Tableau Foundation, and you to make malaria history
PATH is leading the way toward a malaria-free world by focusing on vaccines, new treatments and diagnostic tools, and the rapid elimination of malaria. Tableau Foundation has partnered with PATH to provide vital software, training and significant financial support to PATH to help eliminate malaria in Zambia by 2020. Our partnership will empower front line health workers with the critical tools and resources they need to eliminate this deadly disease. Together we are improving data accuracy and making critical data-informed decisions about how and where to tackle outbreaks. We are also building the skills of district and facility health teams to combat the disease at the community level. This successful model will be scaled globally ending malaria for good.
PATH and Tableau invite you to join us in achieving this historic goal by providing transformative financial or in-kind support. Together, we can end malaria in our lifetime.
Eliminating malaria will:
- Boost African economies
Malaria costs African economies US$12 billion a year in direct costs, and consumes 25 percent of household income in high-burden areas due to lost productivity and health care-related expenses.
- Free up scarce public health resources in developing countries
Malaria accounts for 40 percent of public health spending in highly affected countries. Additionally, in high-burden areas the disease may account for up to 50 percent of hospital and clinic admissions, straining local health systems.
- Strengthen education
Malaria is responsible for up to half of preventable absenteeism in schoolchildren. Anemia caused by malaria interferes with children’s ability to learn, and seven percent of children who survive cerebral malaria, a severe form of the disease, are left with permanent neurological problems.
