World Malaria Day 2015

Fatima Brima, 40, and her son Dalla, 7, sit beneath the insecticide treated mosquito net they sleep together beneath at night, provided by Christian Aid partner ADDRO.Malaria is one of the world's biggest killers. Help us stop this preventable disease.

The latest World Health Organization data estimates that since the year 2000, malaria mortality rates have fallen by 42% globally.

This is great news and we want to celebrate the part our partners have played in this achievement, working hard as part of a determined global movement to eradicate malaria-related deaths.

But malaria still caused an estimated 627,000 deaths in 2012 and this impetus must be maintained. Help us continue to save lives and reach greater numbers of people with your continued support.
