World Malaria Day

The massive scale-up of malaria efforts from 2000–2012 saved 3.3 million lives and decreased the number of malaria deaths worldwide by 45% and by 49% in Africa, according to the World Malaria Report 2013. However, malaria killed an estimated 627,000 in 2012, mainly children under five years of age in sub-Saharan Africa. The ever-evolving challenges of drug and insecticide resistance and changes in the malaria landscape require new interventions, new leadership, and new science. CDC, along with WHO and other global partners is committed to developing and evaluating innovative tools, thus contributing to consolidating the gains made in the last decade, continuing to save lives, and securing a malaria-free future for more people than ever before.
