It's time to getting to zero cases of malaria: invest, innovate, implement
World Malaria Day is celebrated on April 25 every year. Established by the Member States of the WHO during the 2007 World Health Assembly, this day is an opportunity to recall the need for a lasting political and scientific commitment, associated with financial means, in favor of the prevention of the fight against malaria.
Although progress has been made in recent decades to reduce its incidence and mortality, and to improve treatment, malaria still affects millions of people. As the WHO points out, 247 million cases of malaria were reported worldwide in 2021. The estimated number of deaths attributable to this disease amounted to 619,000 in that year.
Yet it is a preventable pathology that can be cured. The research efforts made by scientists around the world, including teams from Inserm, are contributing a little more each day to improving the situation.
The April 25 is here World Malaria Day. An opportunity to remember the impact of this disease and that local solutions exist! Read more
