Global Progress in Malaria Control 2010–2015 Abstract:

The theme for the World Health Organization’s (WHO) World Malaria Day 2017 is Ending Malaria for Good. The world has made great strides in combatting malaria, moving from widespread prevalence across continents to a point today where the fight is waged in smaller geographies, often at a case management level. In that fight, individuals who test positive for malaria infection are treated along with members of their households—the goal being to preserve their health and to stop transmission of the disease to their families and associates.

MEASURE Evaluation, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), has been a partner in combatting malaria for decades; our work on health information systems and the improved use of data is at the front line of battle. As cases decrease and geographies shrink, health workers rely even more on data to determine who may be infected and if they have accessed treatment. In this infographic, MEASURE Evaluation graphically depicts the encouraging story from WHO of how malaria manifests now across the globe.
