World Malaria Day, which is commemorated on 25th April annually, brings together the global malaria community to highlight global efforts to end malaria, the need for sustained political commitment and continued investment for malaria control and elimination.
The theme for this year’s commemoration is
“Time to Deliver Zero Malaria: Invest, Innovate, Implement.”
This theme highlights the need for urgent action and further investment to deliver maximum impact in the fight to end malaria. On this occasion, the global malaria community will come together to celebrate progress and call on countries and partners around the world to:
Invest in malaria programmes, delivering bold investments in malaria control and elimination to bridge critical funding gaps and accelerate progress.
Implement national strategies to accelerate progress against this age-old disease, by demonstrating leadership, adopting innovative and sustainable approaches and scaling up national malaria programmes to deliver lifesaving tools to those at highest risk.
