Dating back to over billions of years ago malaria has predominantly hovered over the continent of Africa with cases reported in Europe and North America. Over the centuries, the latter continents have eradicated cases whiles the problem persists in Africa. Although no longer an epidemic, malaria continues to be a burden, taking the lives of millions with a child reported to die every minute from the disease. This fatality is attributed to poverty in the region.
As we celebrate "World Malaria Day", join in the global campaign and take a moment to invest in the future of this cause to help defeat malaria.
