About

World Malaria Day showcases the global efforts to control and eliminate malaria. Every year on April 25, partners come together to celebrate success, recognize health workers, and underscore the need for expanded investment as well as sustained political commitment for malaria prevention, control, and elimination. On this occasion, the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative, led by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented together with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), releases its Twelfth Annual Report to Congress, which describes the U.S. Government’s financial and technical contributions to the global fight against malaria.
