World malaria report

The World malaria report is the WHO Global Malaria Programme’s flagship publication. It provides the global health community with a comprehensive overview of progress in the fight against malaria. The report includes one-page country profiles for all malaria-endemic countries.

Country profiles

The profiles contain key data about the countries’ malaria burden, a summary of the main interventions and information about the adoption of WHO-recommended policies.
