Sustained Funding From Developed, Endemic Nations Necessary To Eradicate Malaria

Devex: Fuel the fight
Martin Edlund, CEO of Malaria No More

“…Through a massive global effort … the rate of malaria deaths in Africa has been cut in half in under a decade. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 3.3 million lives have been saved since the year 2000 from malaria alone. … Our success in fighting malaria over the past decade has been built upon a solid foundation of funding, and the continued support of the U.S., U.K., and Australian governments; as well as institutions such as the Global Fund and the World Bank, will be essential to finishing the job. But we also need endemic countries and regions to commit to shouldering an increasing share of the costs as we move toward malaria elimination. In the end, it will not be one sector or government that will finally eradicate malaria. It will be a global success — one we should all be proud to have contributed to” (10/30).
