World Malaria Day

World Malaria Day

At 734 Coffee and Humanity Helping Sudan Project, we understand how important it's for the global community to come together to tackle diseases such as Malaria. Globally, 3.3 billion people in 106 countries are at risk of malaria especially those from the refugee population. That's why we partner with organizations such as Nothing But Nets that are leading the fight to #endmalaria.

World Malaria Day is commemorated every 25 April. The Western Pacific Region has made significant progress in efforts to control and eliminate malaria since 2000. Between 2010 and 2015 alone, the region has reduced the case incidence rate of malaria by 30% and its mortality rate by 58%. Both reductions are higher than global achievements for the same period. However, there are reasons to be concerned about more recent global and regional trends.

 WHO is calling on malaria-affected countries, partners and donors to boost investments and efforts to reduce the disease burden through coordinated efforts to strengthen national capacities and ownership as well as funding for scaling up preventive interventions to ensure universal coverage of all at-risk populations in the Region.
