However, recent evidence suggests that the trend toward fewer malaria cases and deaths has stalled, or may have reversed course in some countries.

At least 115 malaria cases were reported across Bihar from January till March this year, as per the monthly surveillance report available on the state health society's website.

The problem of the transmission of malaria was solved, and its discovery opened the way to seek methods of effective prevention and treatment against this devastating disease.

Ghana, Kenya and Malawi will be the first African countries to try out the MosquirixTM vaccine, which acts against Plasmodium falciparum, the most deadly malaria parasite globally, and the most prevalent in Africa.

Dr. Coleman says Liberia had nearly 50 percent reduction of the burden of malaria which helped to reduce child mortality and was nearly at the point of achieving Millennium Development Goal - 4 because of immunization and anti - malaria treatment.

This day is an occasion to highlight the need for continued investment and sustained political commitment for malaria prevention and control.

In pursuit of this goal, the government of Liberia with support from the global funds and the President Malaria initiative of the USA government are vigorously intensifying the anti-malaria strategy.

He urged women, especially pregnant women and children to imbibe the culture of sleeping in screened environment, and assured that the state government's robust health care plan is a mix of proactive and reactive strategies with an affordable health insurance component that will guarantee quality life.

While huge strides have been made in the fight to eliminate malaria, the World Health Organization has highlighted some concerning trends.

Every 60 seconds a child dies from malaria in Africa, and despite the fact that infectious disease is the biggest threat to the continent, the spotlight remains focused elsewhere.

Binh Phuoc was the country's most heavily-affected province with 738 malaria cases, up 70 percent from the same period of 2017.

It also distributed free treated bed nets to the community residents as well as conducted free Malaria and blood pressure tests for them.
