Story by Pallavi Mehr

World Malaria Day is an annual observance that takes place on April 25 to raise awareness of the global effort to control and eventually eradicate malaria, a disease caused by a parasite transmitted through the bites of infected mosquitoes. The day was established in 2007 by the World Health Organization (WHO) and is marked by various events and activities around the world, such as educational campaigns, community outreach, and fundraising efforts to spread awareness. The theme for World Malaria Day 2023 is “Time to deliver zero malaria: invest, innovate, implement,” which aims to accelerate progress toward ending malaria deaths and cases.
