New Global Malaria Strategy Sets Ambitious Target; Disease Can Be Eliminated With More Resources

Huffington Post: Looking Ahead for Global Health
Michael Møller, acting director general of the United Nations Office at Geneva

“…This week the World Health Assembly agreed on a new global malaria strategy that aims to reduce the disease by at least 90 percent and eliminate malaria altogether in at least 35 countries by 2030. Malaria can be prevented and treated, but more resources are needed. The Global Fund estimates that USD$5.1 billion are needed every year, but only half of that is made available. This is an ambitious target. Let’s make sure we don’t let 3.2 billion people down” (5/22).
