ACHIEVING A MALARIA-FREE INDIA

Since 2000, India cut malaria cases by more than half and the number of malaria deaths by more than two-thirds. According to the WHO World Malaria Report 2019, as one of only two top 11 highest malaria burden countries to reduce malaria cases between 2017 and 2018, India registered a remarkable 28% decrease in malaria cases and a 41% decrease in malaria-related deaths. This is in addition to a 24% decline in malaria cases between 2016 and 2017.

Ending Malaria remains a top government priority in India. In 2016, India introduced its first National Framework for Malaria Elimination (2016-2030). In 2019, the Government of India increased funding by more than 25% for the National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme and increased support as a donor to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
