Diaspora Malaria Awareness Initiative - News and Updates
About HRA-UNF Partnership

The United Nation Foundation has partnered with HRA to implement diaspora engagement in health-related awareness activities to stimulate direct investments in the eradication of vector born diseases, particularly, malaria. Malaria is a preventable yet deadly illness, threatening half the world’s population, and killing millions of children. Haiti has one of the greatest numbers of malaria cases among the Caribbean Islands and Central American countries (17,696 in 2014). Since 2010, due to global and local commitments to eradicate malaria, the incidence of the mosquito-borne disease has been cut by as much as half. HRA is supporting the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign and the Malaria Zero Alliance to advocate for increased funding for malaria medical interventions and health systems infrastructure (e.g. medications, treatment centers) in Haiti. Through these partnerships, HRA has expanded its reach to support Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Since Haiti’s SDGs cannot be achieved without significant investments to achieve better health outcomes, HRA has been developing institutional partners across various sectors to promote awareness, better coordination, and integration in humanitarian and development campaigns within the broader Haitian Diaspora community, as well as, in Haiti.
