World Malaria Day April 2018

World Malaria Day 2018 is taking place just a week after the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London presents the APPMG with a unique opportunity to engage parliamentarians on how integral the Commonwealth is in the fight against malaria, and to feedback on outcomes from the Malaria Summit running concurrently to CHOGM.

The Commonwealth is disproportionately affected by malaria, with only a third of the world’s population but two-thirds of the population affected by malaria. The prevalence of malaria in Commonwealth countries means that not acting is not an option if progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals and the ambitious aim of eliminating malaria are to be met. Conversely the opportunities for collaboration and effective work within the Commonwealth is very high and should be seized.
