Madagascar Malaria Fact Sheet

Speeches Shim

Malaria remains endemic in 90 percent of Madagascar and the entire population of 24 million is at risk
for the disease. Severe malaria remains among the top five causes of reported overall mortality. Malaria
prevention and control is a major U.S. foreign assistance objective, and the President’s Malaria
Initiative’s (PMI) strategy is aligned with the U.S. Government’s vision of ending preventable child and
maternal deaths and ending extreme poverty. Our goal is to work with our partners to further reduce
malaria deaths.
