Today 25th April is World Malaria Day. Although remarkable progress has been made in combatting this disease and its spread, it gives us time to reflect on how much work still needs to be done.

The past decade has seen malaria deaths in Africa cut by a third and overall child mortality has fallen by 20%, whilst this is a huge achievement , we need to pause and reflect and realise that the fight has to continue in order for us to fully succeed.

Now is not the time to pull financial resources away from studying this threat to mankind. This has already started to happen, threatening the advances made so far.
With global warming and changes in temperatures accross the world , malaria is a problem for all of us and deserves our continued support for eradication.
