World Malaria Day is an international commemoration day held every year in April 25th. It was established in May 2007 by the 60th session of the World Health Assembly given the impending need of education and awareness-raising of populations living in endemic areas.

Given the huge number of people affected by this disease in 106 countries and the resulting number of deaths – 429.000 in 2015 – mostly among African children, nationals’ malaria-control programs and community-based education activities have become indispensable as a prevention and understanding of malaria strategies for population at risk.

The World Malaria Day took over the African Malaria Day which was originally founded in 2001. Every year, this observance day is an opportunity to remind companies, corporations and multinationals to strengthen their efforts against malaria and for a better life and future.
