Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals are a call to action to end poverty and inequality, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy health, justice and prosperity. MMV's work to reduce the burden of malaria contributes to eight of these goals. Go to a PDF version of the infographic or scroll down for further information on each goal.

MMV works to defeat malaria, a disease that is expected to cause 60,000 additional deaths per year by 2050 due to climate change, according to the WHO.

SDG 17

Partnership is at the core of MMV. We bring together academia, pharma, research institutes, philanthropic organizations and funders to make malaria drug research happen.
