World Malaria Day – Zero Malaria starts with me

After more than a decade of steady advances in fighting malaria, progress has levelled off. According to WHO’s latest World malaria report , no significant gains were made in reducing malaria cases in the period 2015 to 2017. The estimated number of malaria deaths in 2017, at 435 000, remained virtually unchanged over the previous year.
Urgent action is needed to get the global response to malaria back on track – and ownership of the challenge lies in the hands of countries most affected by malaria.
