World Malaria Day is observed every year on April 25, recognizing global efforts to control malaria. Globally, 3.3 billion people in 106 countries are at risk of malaria. In 2009, 781,000 people died from malaria, mainly women and children in Africa.
World Malaria Day was established in May 2007 by the 60th session of the World Health Assembly, the decision-making body of the World Health Organization (WHO). The day was established to provide "education and understanding of malaria" and spread information on "year-long intensified implementation of national malaria-control strategies, including community-based activities for malaria prevention and treatment in endemic areas."
The awareness color for Malaria is Blue.
