World Malaria Day 2022 – ‘Harness innovation to reduce the malaria disease burden and save lives’

Malaria is still a major public health problem, causing nearly half a million deaths each year.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has set the goal of eradicating malaria. This will require a concerted effort from researchers, healthcare providers, and policy-makers around the world. In order to achieve this goal, we must harness the power of innovation to reduce the disease burden and save lives.

One such innovation is the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in malaria diagnosis and treatment. AI can be used to develop better diagnostic tools, improve our understanding of drug resistance, and help us target interventions more effectively. In addition, new technologies such as gene editing can be used to create more effective vaccines and drugs.

Another key area of research is vector control. Mosquitoes are responsible for transmitting malaria parasites between people, so it is critical to develop innovative methods of controlling them.

For many years, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has set the goal of eradicating malaria. Recently, there have been promising advances in malaria control, including the development of new drugs and insecticides. 

However, much more work is needed to achieve the goal of eradication of malaria. It is clear that concerted global efforts are necessary to overcome the many challenges posed by this disease. We must continue to fund research and development for new treatments and interventions, as well as support initiatives to improve access to healthcare for all who need it. As well as collaboration and funding from public and private sectors. Only through continued dedication and collaboration can we hope to bring an end to malaria once and for all.  

Join us to ensure that everyone has access to prevention and treatment services and together we harness innovation to end malaria once and for all!
