The Fight Against Malaria: Is the House on Fire?

A call to finance the road to eradication


Unprecedented progress towards malaria elimination worldwide is at a crossroads. On the one hand, there have been significant gains, but since 2017, the 10 highest burden countries in Africa reported increases in incidence, and mortality reductions have slowed over the last three years. In addition, investment levels continue to be short of targets required to achieve goals set out in the Global Technical Strategy for Malaria 2016-2030 (GTS). 

Progress towards malaria elimination worldwide depends upon the decisions we take in the immediate future. This Policy Brief is a call to finance the road to eradication.
