I have been a member of the United Nations Philatelists Inc. (UNPI) for over a decade. After being the Webmaster for 5 years, I became a Director and then the President of the organization. I have attended many annual UNPI meetings at APS stamp shows over the years and I have met many new philatelic friends through this organization. I have become trading buddies with over a half dozen of the members and have received some great UN malaria items.. A few of the UN collectors have large FDC collections and mentioned that there were cachets with malaria themese used for non malaria themed stamp issues. Once I knew what the items were, I went on the quest to find and purchase my own copies. Some of the example below were traded with me for other UN items.

Below are malaria cachets which were used for United Nations stamps which were not anti-malaria stamps but the stamps certainly do have a malaria connection. World Health Organization, World Health Day and UNICEF certainly have connections to the anti-malaria theme.
