Highlighting World Malaria Day

Several sources recognize World Malaria Day, held annually on April 25. The President’s Malaria Initiative highlights a number of resources and events that underscore this year’s theme, “Invest in the Future: Defeat Malaria,” most notably its Eighth Annual Report to Congress, “which describes the U.S. Government’s contributions to the global fight against malaria” (4/25). In The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog, Alan Magill, director of the Foundation’s malaria program, takes a look at the global progress made addressing malaria, and describes his optimism for achieving “a world free of malaria” (4/25). In UNICEF’s “Connect” blog, Linda Tom, chief of external communication for UNICEF Central African Republic (CAR), describes her experiences and UNICEF’s role in addressing malaria in CAR (4/24).
