Alexandra Daddario dedicated her birthday on March 16 to raise funds for the United Nations Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign and The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF).

The Baywatch star traveled to Malawi this past summer to visit programs supported by the two organizations.

“This year, nothing would make me happier than to donate my birthday to support the communities I met while I visited Malawi,” said Daddario. “ETAF and Nothing But Nets have joined forces to help protect families in Malawi from HIV and malaria, two deadly diseases that cause more than 2 million deaths a year and burden communities around the world. I met so many children and mothers who worry they won’t reach their next birthday, simply because they don’t have access to the medicine and treatment they need. But we can help.”

The partnership between ETAF and Nothing But Nets is a strategic approach to offering holistic care in order to tackle two deadly diseases that cripple communities. By combining resources, the organizations aim to continue a sustainable impact in the villages of southern Malawi where ETAF has worked with its implementing partner, the Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance (GAIA) since 2008. Due to the severe impact malaria can have on a person with HIV, it is critical to fight both diseases simultaneously.

On March 19, Alexandra will join Quinn Tivey, Trustee of Elizabeth Taylor’s estate and The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation on stage at the Nothing But Nets annual Leadership Summit in Washington D.C. Over 200 youth leaders in the fight to end malaria from over 30 states will listen to Alexandra and Quinn discuss “The Power of Partnerships” and expand on the impact of the mobile health clinics Daddario visited in August 2017.
