Keep up momentum

We cannot afford to lose momentum

Today's gains against malaria are increasingly threatened by a shortfall in funding. It is critically important that we stay on course; malaria resurgence will remain a persistent threat until the disease is stopped altogether.

World Malaria Day 2014

World Malaria Day is a chance to shine a spotlight on the global effort to control malaria. Each year, Roll Back Malaria (RBM) partner organisations unite around a common World Malaria Day theme. Invest in the future: defeat malaria is a three-year theme partners chose for the period of 2013-2015 to call attention to the need to reach the 2015 Millennium Development Goals and defeat malaria in the future.

On the occasion of World Malaria Day 2014, we spoke with the Right Honourable Stephen O'Brien, MP, global advocate for the Roll Back Malaria Partnership, about his time in the Sahel collecting mosquitoes, the role of parliamentarians in this fight, the post 2015 agenda, and the importance of continuing to invest in the fight against malaria.
