GLP-W Resource of the Month: World Malaria Day

This year’s theme for World Malaria Day (25 April 2018) is ‘Ready to beat malaria’. This mission is set by the World Health Organisation (WHO), calling on countries to improve access to life-saving prevention tools urgently.

World Malaria Day is a chance to focus on the global effort to control malaria and to learn about interdependence. Deaths from malaria have fallen by 60% since 2000 - saving 6 million lives, most of them children. But in 2016 malaria still caused 429,000 deaths worldwide – 90% in Africa. It remains a major cause and consequence of poverty and inequality. You can investigate malaria and the challenge of controlling it in science and geography with this GLP-W resource:
