World Malaria Day is observed on April 25th every year to raise awareness about the global burden of malaria and to promote efforts to control and prevent the spread of the disease. It was first established in May 2007 by the World Health Assembly, the decision-making body of the World Health Organization (WHO).
Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to humans through the bites of infected female mosquitoes. It is a major public health problem in many parts of the world, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, where it is a leading cause of illness and death, especially among children under the age of five.
The goal of World Malaria Day is to highlight the progress that has been made in controlling and preventing malaria, as well as to emphasize the need for continued investment and action to eradicate the disease. The day serves as a platform for governments, non-governmental organizations, and other stakeholders to come together to coordinate their efforts to fight malaria, including through research, advocacy, and the implementation of effective prevention and treatment strategies.
On World Malaria Day, many organizations and individuals take part in activities such as awareness-raising campaigns, community outreach events, educational programs, and fundraising efforts to support malaria control and prevention programs.
