World Malaria Day


World Malaria Day – a day to make the world care

25 April is a day of unified commemoration of the global effort to provide effective control of malaria around the world.

World Malaria Day is an opportunity for malaria-free countries to learn about the devastating consequences of the disease and for new donors to join a global partnership against malaria. It is an occasion for research and academia institutions to flag their scientific advances to both experts and the general public. It is chance for countries in affected regions to learn from each other's experiences and back each other efforts. It is an opportunity for international partners, companies and foundations to showcase their results and reflect together on how to scale up what has been proven to work.

On World Malaria Day RBM partners will tell their own chapters of the powerful malaria story; a story of triumph and struggle; a story that grabs the world's attention to point it to the heart of the problem and engage the global community in becoming part of the solution.

World Malaria Day is not a day for gloom and fear. It is a day of determination and optimism as the global community now has enough evidence that this fight can be won if partners collaborate efficiently on community, local, national, regional and international levels.

RBM Partners call on the global community to take action against malaria.
