World Malaria Report 2015

According to the latest estimates from WHO, there has been a significant increase in the number of countries moving towards malaria elimination. More than half (57) of the 106 countries with malaria in 2000 had achieved reductions in new malaria cases of at least 75% by 2015. Eighteen countries reduced their malaria cases by 50-75%. Despite progress, malaria transmission continues to occur in 96 countries and causes more than 400 000 deaths globally each year.
