Achieving the Malaria MDG Target

Reversing the Incidence of Malaria 2000-2015

Highlights

In this joint publication, UNICEF and the World Health Organization report that between 2000 and 2015, malaria mortality rates among children under age 5 fell by 65 per cent, saving an estimated 5.9 million lives. The report highlights the remarkable global and regional progress made against malaria, and the main challenges that remain in controlling and eliminating this disease, which still poses a threat to about 3.2 billion people – almost half of the world’s population.
