76% OF BRITS VIEW SCIENCE AS THE UK'S BIGGEST STRENGTH

76% OF BRITS VIEW SCIENCE AS THE UK'S BIGGEST STRENGTH

At a time when global health and science have been put to the test, British-led efforts have given the nation inspiration and a sense of pride.

A new report, Best Of British – How British-backed Science Can Accelerate The End Of Malaria, shows how British-backed science and research is helping to transform the fight against malaria. This includes the development of game-changing malaria vaccines, next-generation insecticide nets, genetically modified mosquitoes, and modelling the impact of different climate scenarios on populations at risk of malaria.

New YouGov polling shows that 76% of Brits felt most proud of British-led science over arts and culture, sport and leisure and manufacturing and engineering. These strong polling results reveal that Brits don’t only care about what happens on their doorstep; they want to see the UK deploy its scientific know-how to help alleviate the burden of deadly diseases around the globe.

WORLD MOSQUITO DAY 2020

WORLD MOSQUITO DAY 2020

20 August is World Mosquito Day, a global commemoration of Sir Ronald Ross’ discovery in 1897 that female Anopheles mosquitoes transmit malaria between humans. World Mosquito Day presents us with an opportunity to raise awareness of the dangers of malaria-carrying mosquitoes, and shine a spotlight on ongoing efforts in the fight against the world’s deadliest creature. Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, now more than ever we must keep up the fight against killer diseases like malaria. By fighting COVID-19 and malaria together, we can save more lives and make a safer world for all.

Get involved this World Mosquito Day using the Zero Malaria toolkit

GSK SUPPORTED MALARIA NO MORE UK IN EMPLOYEE VOLUNTEERING PROGRAMME

GSK SUPPORTED MALARIA NO MORE UK IN EMPLOYEE VOLUNTEERING PROGRAMME

Malaria No More UK (MNM UK) has been privileged to partner with GSK’s PULSE volunteering programme for 2 years. The Programme enables GSK employees to offer their time and expertise to support global health and, in this case, to play their part in ending malaria for good, whilst bringing new ideas and fresh ways of working to the teams they are placed with. One of our highlights of 2019 was welcoming Matthew Pownall (Corporate Secretariat at GSK), and Yamina Laine (Vaccines at GSK) for 6 months, as GSK PULSE Volunteers at Malaria No More UK.

Yamina joined the Philanthropy and Partnerships team as a partnerships specialist and worked to support the development of a framework for building strategic partnerships for MNM UK. She also helped develop our new partnership with Comic Relief. Reflecting on her placement Yamina shared that she enjoyed the opportunity to work in a completely different context and to be out of her comfort zone, learning new skills by adapting to a new way of working.

Matthew supported us as a planning and strategy consultant in the Business Operations team providing project management support for a global event MNM UK will be helping to organise in 2020. He also coordinated a major cross-team funding proposal and managed an IT change project. He has enjoyed the opportunity to work in a completely different environment and gain insights into one of the world’s deadliest diseases.

_"I’ve learnt so much from the great people in MNM UK but also the malaria community at large – all valuable lessons that I will take back to GSK with me." (_Matthew Pownall).

The PULSE Programme has enabled them to contribute to our goal of ending malaria within a generation and to work towards GSK’s mission to help people live better, longer lives.
