There are more than 200 million cases of malaria every year, causing almost 1 million deaths worldwide. In the Americas, the situation is improving but 284 million people continue to be at risk and hundreds of thousands still suffer from this preventable and curable disease.
Please join the Pan American Health Organization, Center for Global Health at George Washington University, the Global Health Network, and the Pan American Health and Education Foundation in commemorating World Malaria Day 2010 by celebrating the work of those who have chosen to become part of the solution for the challenge of malaria in the Americas. Witness the stories of the 2009 Malaria Champions of the Americas; understand the various dimensions of this menacing disease; and share the hope of ‘Counting Malaria Out’.
