World Malaria Day 2016: End malaria for good

Each year, WHO and partners unite around a common World Malaria Day theme. This year’s theme "End malaria for good" reflects the vision of a malaria-free world.

Although there has been a major decline in malaria cases and deaths in the African Region, significant challenges remain.

World Malaria Day offers an annual opportunity to highlight advances in malaria control and to commit to continued investment and action to accelerate progress against this deadly disease.
