This World Malaria Day MMV supports Swiss Malaria Group's call for urgent action

25 Apr 2020

World Malaria Day 2020 is marked by major advances in the fight against malaria, with more than 7 million lives saved and over 1 billion cases prevented in the last two decades. At the same time, COVID-19 threatens this progress and immediate action is required to save lives. According to a model calculation, an increase of 105,000 malaria deaths, mainly children, is predicted due to COVID-19.

MMV supports the call to develop and facilitate access to lifesaving tools, as well as protect children and pregnant women from malaria.
