Washington, D.C., October 20, 2021 – Malaria No More, together with Friends of the Global Fight and the UN Foundation released a new report: How Can We End Malaria? Lessons from Around the World.
In the last two decades, global efforts against malaria have reached a tipping point, allowing health leaders for the first time to move beyond merely controlling this ancient disease and instead commit to ending it.
Since 2000, we have averted more than 1.5 billion cases of malaria and saved 7.6 million lives, cutting death rates from malaria by more than half. More countries than ever before are closer to elimination and, largely because of the global fight against malaria, a child today has a greater chance of survival than at any point in history.
While we know that COVID-19 has presented challenges and disruptions to malaria control activities in many countries, the global coalition against malaria has shown impressive resilience in the face of the pandemic and remains committed to the vision of a world where no one dies from a mosquito bite.
This report highlights six locations – El Salvador, Ethiopia, India, Senegal, the Greater Mekong Subregion, and Uganda – that are making impressive progress against this treatable and preventable disease. Each case study includes a timeline highlighting the pivotal policy changes, interventions, and innovations that are driving progress.
We would like to thank the many researchers and organizations who contributed their knowledge and expertise to our case studies.
