In Cameroon, the entire population of approximately 28 million people are at risk of malaria. Life expectancy, under-five mortality and maternal mortality in Cameroon are worse than the regional average for Central Africa.  According to a 2011 household survey, one third of children under five years of age tested positive for malaria parasites. The National Malaria Strategy 2014–2018 creates a vision of a malaria-free Cameroon with an objective to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality by 75 percent from 2000–2018. To achieve this objective, Cameroon will focus on prevention, case management, communication, training and research, monitoring and evaluation, and program management.
