World Malaria Day
25 APRIL 2014 | GLOBAL
“World Malaria Day” was established and approved at the 60th World Health Assembly (WHA) in March 2007. It replaced “Africa Malaria Day” which was commemorated every year since 2001 on 25 April. The purpose of the day is to raise awareness of malaria as a disease that is preventable and treatable and to mobilize communities across the world to get involved in the fight against it.
