@PAlonsoMalaria Accelerated research and development in new tools for #malaria prevention and treatment is key to #EndMalaria🦟 in the foreseeable future 👉 bit.ly/33PStde

Currently, less than 1% of funding for health R&D investment goes to developing tools to tackle malaria.
@PAlonsoMalaria @WHOAFRO @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @DrTedros @UN_News_Centre @RMinghui To #EndMalaria, WHO flags also urgent need for countries to:
-Advance access to affordable healthcare for everyone
-Get better at knowing where #malaria is occurring and responding quickly
@PAlonsoMalaria @WHOAFRO @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @DrTedros @UN_News_Centre @RMinghui #Malaria kills over 400 000 people every year, affecting 🌍🌎🌏’s most vulnerable populations:

6 out of 10 malaria deaths are children

9 out of 10 malaria deaths occur in sub-Saharan #Africa

@PAlonsoMalaria @WHOAFRO @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @DrTedros @UN_News_Centre @RMinghui Only 1 in 5 🤰 living in areas of moderate to high #malaria transmission in #Africa is able to obtain the drugs she needs to protect herself from malaria 👉 bit.ly/33PStde
@PAlonsoMalaria @WHOAFRO @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @DrTedros @UN_News_Centre @RMinghui 1 in 2 people at risk of #malaria in #Africa sleep under an insecticide-treated net and just 3% are protected by indoor spraying with insecticides 👉 bit.ly/33PStde
@PAlonsoMalaria @WHOAFRO @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @DrTedros @UN_News_Centre @RMinghui Achieving #HealthForAll would enable everyone to access #malaria prevention, diagnostics and treatment, when and where they need them, without suffering financial hardship. 👉 bit.ly/33PStde
@PAlonsoMalaria @WHOAFRO @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @DrTedros @UN_News_Centre @RMinghui DYK: #Malaria prevention tools used today were developed in the last century or even earlier:
-insecticide-treated mosquito nets
-indoor residual spraying
-rapid diagnostic tests
-drugs based on artemisinin

@PAlonsoMalaria @WHOAFRO @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @DrTedros @UN_News_Centre @RMinghui The 🌍🌏🌎’s first #malaria vaccine, RTS,S/AS01, has been deployed earlier this year in Ghana 🇬🇭 and Malawi 🇲🇼, with plans for rollout in Kenya 🇰🇪. 👉 bit.ly/33PStde
Expanding the current #malaria interventions would prevent an additional 2 billion cases and 4 million deaths by 2030 👉bit.ly/33PStde
#Malaria is treatable and preventable. Eradicating malaria would both save lives and boost economies. 👉 bit.ly/33PStde
