Wednesday, 25 April, is World Malaria Day, which this year marks a decisive juncture in the history of malaria control.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon video message:
Last year we mourned the fact that one child died every 45 seconds from this disease. This year, we have managed to slow the clock. It remains a monumental tragedy that one child dies every minute from malaria, but we can draw some hope from the many lives saved through international interventions.
