World Malaria Day 2018: Ready to Beat Malaria

PMI 12th Annual Report to Congress

On April 25, the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) joins in observing World Malaria Day to commemorate the progress toward a world without malaria and mobilize action to combat the disease.

On this occasion, PMI, led by USAID and implemented together with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, releases its Twelfth Annual Report to Congress, which describes the U.S. Government’s contributions to the global fight against malaria.

Together, organizations, communities and private citizens around the world celebrate success and highlight the need for continued investment and sustained political commitment for malaria prevention and control. This year’s theme, “Ready to Beat Malaria,” underscores that we can be the generation to end one of the oldest and deadliest diseases in human history. Join us and get #ReadyToBeatMalaria this World Malaria Day.
