WHO push for prevention on World Malaria Day, 25 April
WHO is calling for closing gaps in coverage of lifesaving malaria prevention tools. While these tools have played a pivotal role in reducing malaria cases and deaths, they are still not available to many who need them. "WHO-recommended tools have made a measurable difference in the global malaria fight," said Dr Margaret Chan, Director-General of WHO. "But we need a much bigger push for prevention – especially in Africa, which bears the greatest burden of malaria."
