Since 2008, World Malaria Day has been celebrated to raise awareness about malaria and how to eradicate this disease from the earth.

WHO joins partner organizations in promoting this year’s World Malaria Day theme, Ready to beat malaria. This theme underscores the collective energy and commitment of the global malaria community in uniting around the common goal of a world free of malaria.

Malaria is a life-threatening disease transmitted via the bite of female Anopheles mosquitoes infected by the malaria causing plasmodium parasite.

About half of the world's population is at risk of malaria, primarily in poor countries. The deadly disease infects more than 500 million people across the world each year and is very much preventable and curable.

World Malaria Day is celebrated every year on April 25th and global organisations like the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations’ (UN) management and regulating authority for global health, play an important role in promoting the awareness about the disease. 

Many individuals and non-profit organisations, as well as enterprises, observe the day as an opportunity to donate money towards key malaria prevention initiatives. A large number of events aimed at fundraising are also organised to promote the prevention, control and treatment of malaria.
