Malaria is a disease that has been prevalent for a long time and continues to affect millions of people on a daily basis.
World Malaria Day 2022: Date
Each year on April 25, World Malaria Day is commemorated to raise global awareness of malaria. Malaria has a terrible effect on individuals, families, communities, and nations. It’s a disease that can be prevented and treated, yet it’s wreaking havoc on individuals’ health and livelihoods all over the world. The WHO is playing a significant role by urging new vector control measures to be funded and innovated. This might improve the diagnosis of malaria, the production of additional anti-malarial medications, and the development of equipment to accelerate malaria research.

This year’s malaria day theme is “Harness Innovation to Reduce Malaria Disease Burden and Save Lives.”
