World Malaria Day around the world – in pictures

3 May 2016

This year’s World Malaria Day, held on April 25th, saw Malaria Consortium engage in a diverse range of activities in many of our countries. The commemorative day, which was established by the United Nations in 2007, provides the chance to highlight this killer disease which still claims the lives of 438,000 people each year. In the UK, it is an opportunity to push for the increased funding that will be needed to continue to fight malaria and to ensure that we maintain the progress made so far. In endemic countries, such as in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, it provides a platform to spread public health messages and can help communities cope with cases of malaria by sharing practical advice.
