World Malaria Day 2019
World Malaria Day, which takes place on 25 April each year, is an internationally recognized day, highlighting the global efforts to control malaria and celebrating the gains that have been made. Since 2000, the world has made historic progress against malaria, saving millions of lives. However, half the world still lives at risk from this preventable, treatable disease, which costs a child’s life every two minutes.
We urgently need to do more to #endmalaria and save millions more who will otherwise needlessly die from the disease.
Malaria remains both a major cause and a consequence of global poverty: its burden is greatest among the poorest and the most vulnerable members of society.
With renewed focus and commitment, we can be the generation to end one of the oldest and deadliest diseases in human history.
What is Malaria?
Malaria is a preventable and treatable infectious disease transmitted by mosquitoes that kills more than 400,000 people each year.
