Global efforts in the last 15 years have led to a 62 percent reduction in malaria deaths between 2000 and 2015, yet approximately 429,000 people died of the disease in 2015, the majority of them young children in
Africa.
In 2015, one child died from malaria every two minutes.

 World Malaria Day

Kenya will commemorate the 10th World Malaria Day in Narok County on 25th April 2017.

The day was set aside so as to evaluate the progress made and gaps experienced during prevention and cure of  the disease.
“The theme for this year is End Malaria for Good. Anyone who has suffered from malaria can relate to this theme. Let us put our efforts to end this disease on the globe,” Dr. Mailu concluded.
