World Malaria Day, which takes place on 25 April each year, is an internationally recognized day, highlighting the global efforts to control malaria and celebrating the gains that have been made. Since 2000, the world has made historic progress against malaria, saving millions of lives. However, half the world still lives at risk from this preventable, treatable disease. In Australia, Malaria Awareness Day is observed on 30 April each year, in conjunction with World Malaria Day on 25 April.

Covid-19 has shown us we must urge greater investment in building and supporting resilient health systems to protect and advance progress against existing infectious diseases like malaria and be prepared to effectively address new outbreaks like COVID-19.

Malaria Awareness Day is held in conjunction with World Malaria Day on 25 April each year. Find out more at https://endmalaria.org/worldmalariaday.

We want to raise $100,000 for projects in the upcoming year, so we are challenging each District to raise $5,250. Help us reach our goal!
