Better, Healthier World

According to The World Health Organization (WHO), the Africa region accounted for 94% of malaria cases and deaths in 2019. Children aged under 5 years are the most vulnerable group affected by malaria; in 2019, they accounted for 67% of all malaria deaths worldwide.

As one of the world largest manufacturers of insect repellents and household pest control products, we bring our core competencies in science, innovation and partnerships to the fight against this pressing public health issue. For decades, we’ve been leveraging our expertise and capabilities to make contributions towards eradicating malaria. 

Recently, Fisk Johnson visited East Africa to join our partners and see the incredible work that's being done to achieve a better, healthier world.

SCJ teams and our partners are working together in this region to help eradicate malaria by improving access to health care, investing in medical infrastructure, and leveraging respected research to monitor the efficacy of mosquito-borne disease prevention efforts.

These programs are promising, but by building on this level of partnership and coordination we can continue to tackle pressing issues and create a better world for future generations and beyond.
