Bank Launches Global Strategy & Booster Program
The World Bank is substantially boosting its support to combat malaria, a dangerous disease which kills more than 3000 people a day in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The move is in recognition that progress on combating malaria has been too slow and uneven ? with over 500 million new cases of malaria each year, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa.
The World Bank has developed a new global strategy ? released today to mark Africa Malaria Day. It will be supported by a booster program which will make funding available to countries to enhance programs to combat the disease.
