In 2013, about 198 million people contracted malaria globally, resulting in 584,000 preventable deaths. Of those victims, 437,000 were children in Africa. Assuming the rate of decline from 2010 to 2013 stays the same, in 2030 there will still be 159 million cases of malaria and 350,000 deaths, according to ONE.

In 2015 we need to make sure that this positive trend continues, by securing a solid financing for the health related development goals.
