Endemic Countries

Source: World Malaria Report 2014

Malaria transmission continues to affect 97 countries and territories around the world, inflicting a tremendous burden on countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

Nearly 300 million people in sub-Saharan Africa still lack access to a protective insecticide-treated net, and at least 15 million pregnant women do not receive the protective treatment they need to keep themselves and their unborn child healthy. And malaria is still responsible for more than 450,000 child deaths in Africa each year.

In 2013, it is estimated that in sub-Saharan Africa 278 million of the 840 million people at risk of malaria live in households with no access to a single ITN; 15 million of the 35 million pregnant women did not receive a single dose of IPTp; Between 100 and 140 million children with malaria did not receive an ACT for treatment.

Together, DR Congo and Nigeria accounted for over 40% of the estimated global total of malaria deaths. Tanzania, Uganda, Mozambique and Côte d’Ivoire are also highly affected by malaria. These six countries account for an estimated 47% (103 million) of global malaria cases. In South-East Asia, the second most affected part of the world, India has the highest malaria burden, followed by Indonesia and Myanmar.
