Data and statistics

World Malaria Report

The World Malaria Report is the WHO Global Malaria Programme’s flagship publication, published every year in December. The report provides the global health community with a comprehensive overview of progress in the fight against malaria.

Country profiles

One-page country profiles are available for all malaria-endemic countries of the world. The profiles contain key data about the countries’ malaria burden, as well as a summary of the main malaria interventions used, and information about the adoption of WHO-recommended policies.

Global antimalarial drug efficacy database

This database was initiated in 2000 to centralize data collection and facilitate reporting on the status of antimalarial drug efficacy in endemic countries. Since April 2014, the data can also be searched through an interactive mapping platform.

Global insecticide resistance database

The aim of the global insecticide resistance database is to centralize data collection and facilitate standardized reporting on the status of insecticide susceptibility of Anopheles malaria vectors.

Global Health Observatory (GHO): malaria

The Global Health Observatory theme page on malaria uses the latest data from the World Malaria Report to provide data and analyses on the global malaria situation.

Global Malaria Mapper

The WHO Global Malaria Programme and the Medicines for Malaria Venture have developed an interactive mapping tool which allows users to create their own malaria maps. The maps include data from the latest World Malaria Report.

Updates on artemisinin resistance

These updates bring together the latest findings and conclusions about the state of parasite resistance to artemisinin. The updates also summarize WHO’s current policy and treatment recommendations for affected countries, and highlight areas of concern.

Updates on oral artemisinin-based monotherapies

WHO urges governments of malaria-endemic countries to take measures to halt the production and marketing of oral artemisinin-based monotherapies. WHO monitors the positions of national regulatory authorities and manufacturing companies and issues regular updates.
