Save the Children joins the global community in recognizing World Malaria Day -a disease that threatens both pregnant mothers and newborns. World Malaria Day aims to bring global attention to the efforts being made to bring an end to malaria, keep malaria high on the political agenda, mobilize additional resources, and empower communities for malaria prevention and control.
Please join us on April 19, 2022 at 8:00 – 9:00 am EDT for a World Malaria Day 2022 webinar.
Global and in-country malaria experts and implementers from the Asia-Pacific and Sub-Saharan Africa will share successes, challenges and lessons learned in implementing locally-led, equitable and resilient malaria services with a focus on reaching the last mile.
