Malaria No More wasn’t happy with the caption that appeared under this picture in a New York Times article about nonprofits that close because they’ve met their goals.
The caption says: “Scott Case [the group’s vice chair] says Malaria No More is closing because most of the people at  risk of contracting malaria now have bed nets.”
On its blog, Malaria No More says: “A caption claimed that Malaria No More was closing its doors, implying  that this was effective immediately. We are not—and we will not do so  until we reach our goal of ending malaria deaths in Africa.”

What we’ve meant by advocacy when it comes to media is that we are advocating greater attention to these issues. But that’s now been changed as part of an internal shift (organizational restructuring) and these media partnerships will no longer be funded through advocacy. They are now being handled as part of communications and advocacy is separate. — The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Tom Scott in response to a question from Humanosphere's Tom Paulson about the foundation's media partnership funding coming from its “advocacy” program.
