World Malaria Day

Worldmalariaday 510x288

The World Health Organization’s World Malaria Report in 2017 showed that after an unprecedented period of success in global malaria control, progress has stalled.

In 2016, there were an estimated 216 million cases of malaria causing 445,000 deaths, the majority in sub-Saharan Africa, and among young children.

Malaria remains endemic in around 100 countries with more than three billion people at risk.

World Malaria Day, held on 25 April each year, highlights the need for continued investment and sustained political commitment for malaria prevention and control.

It is also an opportunity for new donors to join the global malaria partnership, and for research and academic institutions to showcase their scientific work.
