Today, there are a record number of refugees and families displaced by conflict across sub-Saharan Africa – nearly all of whom are vulnerable to malaria. In 2014 the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign launched The Million Nets Pledge to protect refugee families from malaria with one million bed nets and other malaria interventions by 2016. Sumitomo Chemical partnered with Nothing But Nets in the successful completion of The Million Nets Pledge to provide live-saving long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) to refugees and internally displaced persons across Africa, where 90% of malaria deaths occur. The commitment included a co-funded contribution of 500,000 LLINs (USD $1.75 million in value), which will protect at least 1 million people, an estimated 75% of whom are women and children.
