Dear Aimee,
Globally, nearly 3.4 billion people—about half of the world’s population—are at risk of malaria. With children and pregnant women the most severely affected, its continued threat both saddens and motivates us at MCSP.
This World Malaria Day, we are renewing our efforts to end preventable child and maternal deaths, buoyed by a decade of good news in the fight against this deadly disease.
Since 2000, tools to prevent and treat malaria have reduced related deaths by 60%. That’s 6.2 million lives saved!
To ensure this momentum isn’t lost, our staff is providing support through global leadership and strengthening a country level response to eliminate malaria. We are accelerating malaria in pregnancy prevention and control, and improving case management of the disease at both health facility and community levels.
No pregnant woman or child should lose their life because of a mosquito bite. Together, we can be the generation that ends malaria.
I invite you to learn more about our work strengthening country health systems and working toward universal coverage and malaria elimination. And please join us for a #MalariaChat on Twitter today from 9:00 am–11:30 am EDT using #MalariaChat and follow @MCSPglobal and @PMIgov.
With warm regards,
Koki Agarwal, MD, MPH, DrPH
Director
