End Malaria Dialogues: With 78 months left to #endMalaria by 2030, are we on track?

Governments worldwide had committed to end malaria by 2030 as part of the promises enshrined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Malaria not only directly endanger health, it also perpetuates a cycle of inequity.

The disease disproportionately disadvantages those communities and social groups that are already facing economic, societal and health challenges. Globally in 2022, there were 608,000 malaria deaths in 85 countries. The African continent carries a disproportionately high share of the global malaria burden. In 2022, the continent was home to 94% of malaria cases (233 million) and 95% (580 000) of malaria deaths.

End Malaria Dialogues are jointly hosted by CSO platform in the Mekong region (the first malaria CSO and community network globally, funded by the Global Fund Regional Artemisinin Resistance Initiative or RAI grant) and CNS.

Around the 77th World Health Assembly, join us in the inaugural episode of End Malaria Dialogues.
