Malaria is a life-threatening disease that kills over 400,000 people per year. Children under 5 are the most vulnerable group, accounting for 67% of the worldwide cases in 2019. Although it is a preventable and treatable disease, we are still far away from a malaria-free world.
In order to unite efforts and eliminate malaria in one generation, the pan-African movement Zero Malaria Starts With Me have launched the new campaign Draw the Line Against Malaria. The campaign calls for more action, innovation, and financial resources, inviting people around the world to draw the line against this disease and add their own piece of art to the monumental malaria mural at zeromalaria.org. Join the movement!
