On April 25, World Malaria Day is celebrated globally, presenting the opportunity to highlight remarkable progress made towards combatting malaria over recent years.


In Africa, malaria deaths have been cut by one third within the last decade; outside of Africa, 35 out of the 53 countries, affected by malaria, have reduced cases by 50% in the same time period. In countries where access to malaria control interventions has improved most significantly, overall child mortality rates have fallen by approximately 20%.


Continuing to focus on the fight is vital. If we are to learn from examples of infectious disease control, remaining committed to efforts in eradication and controlling the spread of the disease is a valuable lesson learnt.

The Malaria Control in Schools toolkit aims to enable education professionals to develop effective programmes on the prevention and control of malaria for school-age children within malaria endemic countries.


Practical up-to-date information and experience on the control of malaria in schools is presented with both technical and policy advice on malaria, and how countries can plan and implement school-based malaria interventions. Download the toolkit.
