Defeating malaria is critical to ending poverty and improving maternal and child health. Pregnant women and their babies are especially at risk, since malaria infection during pregnancy can lead to stillbirth, low birth weight and other complications. There are effective and inexpensive strategies available to prevent malaria in pregnancy, including Intermittent Preventive Treatment of Malaria in Pregnancy (IPTp) and insecticide treated bednets (ITNs).
