World Malaria Report 2016

The 2016 World Malaria Report highlights several positive trends over the last five years, including better testing of children reporting fevers, expanding access to disease-treating tools, a five-fold increase in 3 dose IPTp delivery, and an increase of over 75% in the number of people sleeping under insecticide-treated bed nets. At the same time, millions still lack needed resources, and progress is inhibited by inadequate funding. The report also mentions the WHO’s recommendation for IPTp during pregnancy as a method for preventing maternal anemia and mortality.
