If you have a question about this talk, please contact A. Kapila.

Rob Mather is the founder of the Against Malaria Foundation (AMF). AMF works to prevent illness and death from malaria by distributing anti-malarial bednets. Rob studied chemical engineering at Trinity Hall (1984).

Rob’s data-driven methods mean that Giving What We Can and GiveWell have consistently rated AMF as the most effective charity in the world. On average, AMF saves a child’s life for $3,162. It is estimated that every $1m spent on its intervention of choice improves the GDP of Continental Africa by $12m.

Rob has said in the past that he has ‘a certain cynicism when it comes to charity’. Come find out more about his approach.

All are welcome, regardless of affiliation with the University of Cambridge.
