World Malaria Day 2019

Zero malaria starts with me

Unitaid welcomes World Malaria Day 2019 with record-level investment in innovative projects that will take us closer to a world without malaria.

We are delighted to co-organize today’s Zero Malaria Starts with Me Conference, together with the City of Paris, the RBM Partnership and the Friends of the Global Fund Europe. The event provides a special opportunity for countries, experts, civil society and the private sector to strengthen our commitment to eliminate this ancient disease.

We are also working with a growing number of partners to improve prevention, mosquito control and medicines.
