DYK: 445 000 people died from #malaria in 2016.
In most malaria-affected countries, sleeping under an insecticide-treated mosquito net is one of the most effective ways to stop malaria.
In Odisha, #India, health activists go door to door at night - when the mosquitoes bite - to ensure the nets are being used correctly.

Pregnant women must be able to access the right care at the right time.
Regular contact with health services throughout pregnancy will protect mother’s and baby’s health.

#AirPollution is an invisible killer.
It lurks all around us, preying on the young and old.
It kills 2 million people from heart disease.
Let’s stop it! #BreatheLife

If we stop vaccination, diseases that have become uncommon will return. Vaccines are a great tool that can eliminate disease from the map. #VaccinesWork!

Two new #polio cases were confirmed in #Afghanistan in the past week. Each case is one too many. Today, 70,000 vaccinators will complete one last round to vaccinate any kids who were missed during this week's immunization campaign. To #EndPolio we need to reach every child. #VaccinesWork!

🐶 Do you have a dog?
99% of #rabies cases in humans are caused by dog bites. If we vaccinate dogs, we can end rabies and save lives.
