If the last few years have shown us anything, it’s that people like you recognize the importance of bringing awareness to World Malaria Day and putting a face to the people who are at risk of malaria, a disease that kills more than one million people every year in Africa. World Malaria Day began as an initiative of the Roll Back Malaria Partnership as part of the global effort to eliminate malaria deaths. In recent years, people have committed to this important cause and shown that they are dedicated to sending nets and saving lives.
