President’s Malaria Initiative : ninth annual report to Congress
  • Description:
    The fight against malaria is making historic gains across sub-Saharan Africa. In countries where insecticide-treated mosquito nets (ITNs), indoor residual spraying (IRS), improved diagnostic tests, and highly effective antimalarial drugs have been scaled up, mortality rates in children under five years of age have fallen markedly. According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) 2014 World Malaria Report, in Africa, between 2000 and 2013, the estimated number of malaria cases in all age groups decreased from 174 million to 163 million. The estimated malaria mortality rate in children under five decreased by 58 percent in the Africa region between 2000 and 2013, while the scale-up of malaria control interventions over the same period resulted in an estimated 4.3 million fewer malaria deaths globally. These successes in reducing malaria’s burden are the result of a tremendous increase in financing for malaria control and the expansion of malaria control interventions. The cumulative ef- forts of the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), national govern- ments, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund), and many other partners are clearly working. The U.S. Government’s financial and technical contributions, through PMI, have been key in this remarkable progress. In the nearly 10 years since it was launched, PMI has garnered recognition as a highly effective program that successfully combines solid support at the country level with global leadership on malaria prevention and control with other funding and technical partners.
