Please find attached the World Malaria Report 2018. The striking point in it is that the progress to eliminate malaria has stalled. The 10 most malaria burdened countries saw an increase of 3.5 million malaria cases in 2017.
"The World malaria report 2018 estimates that there were 219 million cases of malaria in 2017.
The 10 highest burden African countries saw an estimated 3.5 million more malaria cases in
2017 compared with the previous year.
Malaria continues to claim the lives of more than 435 000 people each year, largely in Africa.
Children under the age of 5 are especially vulnerable; the fact that every two minutes a child
dies from this preventable and curable disease is unacceptable."
