Number of malaria deaths


Reported deaths, 2014

99 542 deaths from malaria were reported in 2014, by 95 countries and territories with ongoing malaria transmission

Reported malaria deaths represent deaths identified in the health care system and reported through each country’s surveillance system. In many malaria endemic countries, most deaths occur outside the health system. Furthermore, due to uncertainties in determining the cause of death and incomplete reporting, the number of reported deaths is unlikely to represent the true number of malaria deaths.
