World Malaria Day, marked each year on 25 April, brings together the global malaria community to highlight global efforts to end malaria, the need for sustained political commitment and continued investment for malaria control and elimination.

Today, the combination of low coverage of existing tools, emerging biological threats and funding shortfalls are brewing a perfect storm for malaria. Now is the time to take decisive action to deliver on our goal of zero malaria and achieve 2030 targets.

This World Malaria Day, it’s time to deliver zero malaria.

2023 theme

Time to Deliver Zero Malaria: Invest, Innovate, Implement.


Our 2023 theme highlights the need for urgent action and further investment to ensure investments made to date deliver maximum impact in the fight to end malaria. This World Malaria Day, the global malaria community will come together to celebrate progress and call on countries and partners around the world to:

  • Invest in malaria programmes, delivering bold investments in malaria control and elimination to bridge critical funding gaps and accelerate progress.
  • Innovate to deliver transformative and improved solutions to end malaria that are tailored to those who need them most.
  • Implement national strategies to accelerate progress against this age-old disease, by demonstrating leadership, adopting innovative and sustainable approaches and scaling up national malaria programmes to deliver lifesaving tools to those at highest risk.
