Leaders at UN Commits to End Malaria for Good

New York (September 21, 2017) – Today, country leaders and senior officials from across Africa, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas announced new political and financial commitments to accelerate the global fight towards eliminating malaria – a disease that claims the life of a child every two minutes and puts half the world at risk.

Convening at the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly, leaders underscored the need to intensify efforts to meet the global goal set by the World Health Organization (WHO) to reduce the burden of malaria by 90% by 2030.
