The concerns for the treatment and eradication of Malaria take centre stage once again.
Unarguably, Malaria is one of the most severe public health problems worldwide. It is a leading cause of death and disease in many developing countries, where young children and pregnant women are the groups most affected.
According to the 2021 World Malaria Report: Nearly half the world’s population lives in areas at risk of malaria transmission in 87 countries and territories.
In 2020, malaria caused an estimated 241 million clinical episodes, and 627,000 deaths. An estimated 95% of deaths in 2020 were in the WHO African Region.
The theme for this year’s world malaria day is “Time to deliver zero malaria: invest, innovate, implement”.
