‘Sustained’, ‘Sufficient’ Funding Critical For Malaria Control, WHO Report Says

Agence France-Presse: Lack of funds threatens malaria progress: WHO
“Global progress on controlling malaria risks stalling due to an ‘urgent need’ for more funding, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned in its annual report on Tuesday. … The report said that ‘sustained and sufficient funding for malaria control is a serious challenge,’ noting that after a steep increase between 2000 and 2010, investment had ‘flat-lined.’ … The United States provided about 35 percent of all malaria funding in 2015, while governments of countries with malaria stumped up about 32 percent, and Britain 16 percent…” (12/13).
