World Malaria Day 2013


World Malaria Day was instituted by WHO Member States during the World Health Assembly of 2007. It is an occasion to highlight the need for continued investment and sustained political commitment for malaria prevention and control. It is also an opportunity:    for countries in affected regions to learn from each other's experiences and support each other's efforts;

  • for new donors to join a global partnership against malaria;
  • for research and academic institutions to flag scientific advances to both experts and the general public; and
  • for international partners, companies and foundations to showcase their efforts and reflect on how to further scale up interventions.

The theme for World Malaria Day 2013 and the coming years is: Invest in the future. Defeat malaria.


Invest in the future. Defeat malaria.

Investir dans l’avenir. Vaincre le paludisme.
