In recognition of World Malaria Day on April 25th, host and Common Impact CEO Danielle Holly speaks with Margaret McDonnell, Executive Director of the UN Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign, the world’s largest and most powerful community of supporters and advocates committed to saving lives and defeating malaria.

Nothing But Nets has raised over $70 million to help deliver 13 million bed nets to families in need, along with other crucial malaria interventions that have drastically reduced fatalities since the early 2000's. Margaret also delves into the many connections between malaria and COVID-19, including lessons learned from the fight against malaria that can be applied to the current COVID-19 situation and how both diseases demonstrate the urgent need to better fund public health systems worldwide.
