Notice to Readers: Africa Malaria Day

Apr 25, 2006 | CDC

Approximately 90% of the estimated 1 million deaths caused by malaria each year occur in Africa, where every 30 seconds a child dies from malaria. To confront this public health problem, on April 25, 2000, government leaders from 44 African countries met in Abuja, Nigeria, and signed the Abuja Declaration, committing their countries to decreasing malaria deaths in Africa by 50% by 2010. This event has been commemorated every year since on Africa Malaria Day.
