World Malaria Day 2022

"Harness innovation to reduce the malaria disease burden and save lives.”

Malaria is a disease that has been with us for many years and affects millions of people every day. World Malaria Day, on April 25th each year, is used to highlight the burden of this disease to the world. The theme for this year's World Malaria Day is 'harness innovation to reduce the malaria disease burden and save lives.'

Malaria Journal launched twenty years ago and during that time we have published many landmark and innovative papers. In 2020, the journal launched an ongoing open Collection: Alternative interventions to facilitate malaria elimination - inviting innovative approaches to malaria elimination.
