World Malaria Day - 25th April
World Malaria Day 2012 is characterised by the call to ‘Sustain Gains, Save Lives and Invest in Malaria’. This theme highlights the need for ongoing action to keep up the momentum to fight malaria. The last decade has seen historic progress – deaths in Africa have been cut by one third and outside of Africa, 35 out of the 53 countries affected by malaria, have reduced cases by 50%.
To make sure this progress continues in the long term, fighting malaria needs to stay a local and global priority. We hope you will join us and take action to help save lives from malaria.
Check out the global World Malaria Day website for an overview of international action taking place.
