FuelING the Fight to End Malaria
We envision a world where no one dies from a mosquito bite. More than a decade into our mission, our work has contributed to historic progress toward this goal. Now, we’re mobilizing the political commitment, funding, and innovation required to achieve what would be one of the greatest humanitarian accomplishments – ending malaria within our generation.
Thanks to sustained efforts by the US and partner governments, non-profit organizations and individuals, the world has made historic progress in the fight against malaria. This progress has unlocked immeasurable human potential, improved the health of hundreds of millions of people and will save and improve lives for generations to come.
“Global malaria control ranks as one of the great public health success stories since the start of this century.”
— MARGARET CHAN, DIRECTOR GENERAL OF THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION, 2007-2017
ACCELERATING THE PATH TO ELIMINATION
Thanks to historic progress against this disease, the world has set its sights on an ambitious target: ending malaria in our lifetimes. With 11 countries on track to eliminate malaria by 2020, the next two years are critical to ensure that the funding, innovation and leadership are in place to meet this milestone and put us on the path to make malaria no more.
