Antananarivo, Madagascar – The United States government is pleased this World Malaria Day to note the dramatic progress that has been made over the past decade to reduce the burden of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa.  According to the World Health Organization, the scale-up of malaria control interventions resulted in an estimated 4.3 million fewer malaria deaths globally since 2000.

Every year, the global community observes World Malaria Day to call attention to the disease and to mobilize action to combat it. The United States malaria program, through the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), continues to be a leader in the global fight against malaria.  In the ninth year of the initiative, its financial and technical contributions are a major impulse in the remarkable progress that has been achieved in many countries to reduce the devastating burden of malaria on child mortality.
