World Malaria Day

World Malaria Day (25 April) is a day for recognizing the global effort towards effective control. It is an opportunity for:

  • countries in affected regions to learn from each other’s experience and support each other’s efforts;
  • new donors to join a global partnership;
  • research and academic institutions to flag their scientific advances to both experts and general public; and
  • international partners, companies and foundations to showcase their efforts and consider how to scale up what has worked.

World Malaria Day was instituted by the World Health Assembly in May 2007.
