World Malaria Day

The massive scale-up of malaria efforts from 2000–2015 saved 6.2 million lives and decreased the number of malaria deaths by 60% worldwide and by 66% in Africa, according to the World Malaria Report 2015. However, malaria killed an estimated 438,000 in 2015, mainly children under five years of age in sub-Saharan Africa. The ever-evolving challenges of drug and insecticide resistance, changes in the malaria landscape, and aspirations for elimination will all require new interventions and new science.
