WHO congratulates the growing number of countries that are nearing and achieving malaria-free status ahead of World Malaria Day, which is observed every year on April 25. A new project launched today aims to stop the disease from spreading in another 25 countries by 2025.
In 2019, 46 of the 87 nations with malaria reported fewer than 10,000 cases, compared to 26 countries in 2000.
“Many of the countries we are recognising today had a significant malaria burden at one time. Their victories were hard-won and came only after decades of persistent effort,” said WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. “Together, they have demonstrated to the rest of the world that malaria eradication is a realistic goal for all countries.”
According to the report, Algeria, Belize, Cabo Verde, China, El Salvador, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Malaysia, and Paraguay will have reported zero indigenous instances of human malaria by the end of 2020. The P. knowlesi parasite, which is generally found in monkeys, infected over 2600 humans in Malaysia in 2020.
