Please join me in recognizing World Malaria Day.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) :
World Malaria Day is a day for recognizing the global effort to provide effective control of malaria. It is an opportunity:
- for countries in the affected regions to learn from each other's experiences and support each other's efforts;
- for new donors to join a global partnership against malaria;
- for research and academic institutions to flag their scientific advances to both experts and general public; and
- for international partners, companies and foundations to showcase their efforts and reflect on how to scale up what has worked.
I've chosen to recognize World Malaria Day with the following case:
