World Malaria Day takes place on 25 April every year. According to the Roll Back Malaria Partnership, who are the world’s largest multi-stakeholder platform in fighting malaria, World Malaria Day is “an internationally recognised day, highlighting the global efforts to control malaria and celebrating the gains that have been made”. As part of World Malaria Day, health organisations and scientists come together to discuss tackling the disease and raise awareness through public educational programs, charity events and community activities. In 2019, World Malaria Day is taking place under the theme ‘zero malaria starts with me’, with the aim of empowering individuals across the world to make a “personal commitment to saving millions more lives”, and help communities and economies to “thrive” by eradicating the disease.
