World Malaria Day 2023

"Time to deliver zero malaria: invest, innovate, implement”

World Malaria Day, on April 25th each year, is used to highlight the burden of this disease to the world. Malaria affects millions of people every day, has been around for millennia, but has been hard to eliminate. The theme for this year's World Malaria Day is 'Time to deliver zero malaria: invest, innovate, implement.'

It is clear that in order to deliver zero malaria, we will need to employ combinations of strategies, look at the problem from many different angles and be innovative.

On this page, Malaria Journal is highlighting some of our recent articles showing the various aspects of malarial research from molecular biology, genetics and mapping to innovative house design.

This is a retrospective collection and all articles on this page underwent Malaria Journal's standard peer review process.
