Malaria No More Japan
Takahiro Shinyo

We are honored to announce the foundation of Malaria No More Japan in this country which once experienced and eradicated malaria.
In Japan, malaria is becoming past and unexperienced particularly to the younger generation. However, malaria still exert an overwhelming influences in Africa and Asia as one of the world 3 major infectious disease along with HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. Half of the world population are still threatened and numerous children's lives are taken by malaria.

Meanwhile malaria is a preventable and treatable disease. In 10years from 2000, worldwide malaria mortality has been reduced by 25% thanks to the effort by international organizations to distribute mosquito nets, diagnostic kits and medicines. In order to end malaria, the whole world is required to take further action together.
Infectious disease is deeply involved with issue of sustainable development of the developing world, as well as the issue of human security. By supporting the 5th Tokyo International Conference on African Development(TICAD V) and the achievement of Millennium Development Goals, we dedicate ourselves to create the momentum from Japan to end malaria through awareness raising and advocacy. We appreciate your kind support to us.

Purpose of the foundation

Although difficult to realize in Japan where malaria was eradicated long ago, half of the world's population is still at risk of malaria. According to WHO research, about 650,000 people died of malaria in 2010. 90% of the victims are living in Sub-Saharan Africa and many of them are children under 5. There is an unbearable fact that a child dies every minute and their precious life could have been saved given appropriate response. Ending malaria is not only saving today's children's lives and reduce mortality but also pulling them out of the vicious spiral of poverty.

Malaria is an infectious disease that is preventable and treatable. It can be prevented by the use of insecticide treated nets and be cured with early, accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. In 10 years from 2000, worldwide malaria deaths were cut by 20% thanks to the international organizations' effort to distribute mosquito nets, However, ending malaria requires more of the coordinated approach by the whole world.

Malaria No More is a Non-Profit Organization started in 2006 dedicated in the worldwide action to end malaria. The head office is located in the US and branches are in the UK, Canada and Netherland. We strongly sympathize its cause and feel the significance for Japan to take the lead among Asian countries in the fight against malaria considering its experience in eradicating the disease in its own area. We thus establish Malaria No More Japan in order to create global momentum to end malaria among Asian countries and to carry out awareness raising/advocacy activities in the vision to realize Millennium Development Goals in 2015.

Malaria No More Japan will organize events and campaigns at the 5th Tokyo International Conference on African Development(TICAD V) held in June 2013 in Yokohama city and World Malaria Day(25th April). We also engage in developing/spreading the communication tools for awareness raising and in advocacy activities. In addition, we will strengthen the cooperation with other Asian organizations to widen the physical area of our educational activities and conduct further diverse activities. Through the cooperated effort to end malaria, we aim to improve the lives of people in developing countries and contribute to the creation of the sustainable society.

Vision:

Vision : Realize the society that is...  −

We Malaria No More Japan aims to realize 'Malaria Free World'.
Although hard to believe today, malaria existed in Japan before World War Ⅱ. We must face the reality that even today half of the world's population are threatened by malaria, and make a sincere effort toward the achievement of 'Malaria Free World' making use of our past knowledge, experience and current resource as a part of the global community. Eradication of malaria is not just about saving children's lives and reducing mortality. It also means ending the negative spiral of poverty in developing countries, which helps us opening bright future to the younger generation. Ending malaria is one way to raise people's quality of life in the developing nations and contributes to create sustainable society.

Mission: Mission to accomplish −

In 2010, about 650,000 people were killed by malaria. 90% of them were children under 5 in developing countries who also suffer from poverty. Every minute a child dies of malaria. We Malaria No More Japan intend to face the reality and provide solution to end malaria deaths. Meanwhile, malaria is controllable with current available technologies, i.e. adequate use of skills and tools for prevention and treatment. Malaria No More Japan thus aims to build a system to adequately and promptly provide current technologies to the areas in Asia and Africa where malaria is taking hold. We also target to swiftly respond to the potential challenge and promote practical action among Japanese society.

Decralation1(Goal1): Our promise 1 −

Malaria is preventable and treatable. Infection can be controlled by using insecticide-treated nets and early accurate diagnosis and medical treatment can make the disease more curable. In fact the worldwide malaria mortality has rapidly dropped in 10years from 2000 owing to the positive approach by international organizations to hand out bed nets, diagnostic kits and medicines. By recognizing the efficacy of the approach, we will strengthen the appeal to the Japanese government and other international organizations to promote action toward realizing Millennium Development Goal of halving malaria deaths by 2015.

Decralation2(Goal2): Our promise 2 −

Although hard to believe today, malaria existed in Japan before World War Ⅱ. That means we have knowledge, experience and resources that is useful in achieving 'Malaria Free World'. Meanwhile, since malaria become far removed from Japanese society, there is not enough recognition on such facts that 'a child dies of malaria every minute' and 'malaria accounts for the poverty spiral in developing countries'. Therefore Malaria No More Japan promises to significantly raise awareness on the global threat of malaria and encourage support among Japanese society, leading to the establishment of direct support system in malaria endemic areas in Asia and Africa.

Decralation3(Goal3): Our promise 3 −

Malaria No More is a Non-Profit Organization launched in 2006 with the head office located in the US. The organization dedicates itself to the global effort to end malaria and has branches in the UK, Canada and Netherland. We, in cooperation with these organizations, will create the strong momentum in Asia to eradicate malaria, with Japan performing central role making use of its experience to end malaria in its own area. We will work in team with diverse organizations, corporations and academic institutions in Asia and actively participate in various initiatives.
