Steps towards having a malaria-free world

What you need to know:

  • This year’s theme of World Malaria Day is “Invest in the Future: Defeat Malaria”. In the past couple of years, there has been a 10-fold increase in funding to support elimination of malaria.
  • But it’s not all gloom and doom. We have the opportunity to accelerate progress towards elimination of the disease in Kenya and other countries by improving the delivery of existing interventions.
  • s much as many donors have committed huge funds to combat malaria worldwide, we still continue to advocate for sustained and increased funding of malaria-related efforts by donor governments.

To date, malaria still occurs in over 100 countries worldwide, with an estimated annual cases of over 200 million, resulting in approximately one million deaths worldwide, especially in children below the age of five years and pregnant women.
