Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling

Why this foundation?


In the Netherlands, few organisations and local initiatives focus wholy or partially on the protection of people against malaria. There is no organisation that focuses on the elimination of the problem. This requires specialist know-how that the Dutch Malaria Foundation has access to. The Foundation strives to coordinate Dutch initiatives and develop joint activities with other players in the field of malaria control.


Within the international arena of malaria control, the ideas and activities of the Dutch Malaria Foundation are unique and challenging. Through integration of hands-on malaria control activities, scientific research, and awareness creation, the Foundation can deliver a unique contribution to global developments and needs for malaria control, within an ecologically sound framework.


We value openness and transparency. Our team combines passion, expertise, and many years of working and living experience in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. We honour our donors and partner organisations and maintain responsible financial policies. 


The Dutch Malaria Foundation was founded by Prof. Bart Knols (malaria expert) and Ingeborg van Schayk (communications and malaria expert). Both have been active in the field of malaria research and control since 1992. Both have worked for many years in developing countries, notably in Africa. Ingeborg set up the MalariaWorld project when based in Kenya in 2001. This online platform has become the largest international information source for malaria professionals around the world. 


This interactive portal currently provides >9000 malaria professionals from 140 countries with the latest (scientific) information on malaria and facilitates networking and knowledge exchange. MalariaWorld also publishes its own Peer reviewed scientific Open Access journal MW Journal and is being supported by 48 international renowned health experts.
