World Malaria Day 2017

Malaria prevention tools, including insecticide-treated mosquito nets, indoor residual spraying of insecticides and preventive therapies, are powerful and cost-effective. These tools are saving lives, but they are still not available to many who need them. On World Malaria Day 2017, WHO is calling on countries and their development partners to urgently improve access to life-saving prevention tools.
