World Malaria Day gives people the chance to promote or learn about the efforts made to prevent and reduce Malaria around the world. It is observed on April 25 each year.
What Do People Do On World Malaria Day:
Organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), which is the United Nations’ (UN) directing and coordinating authority for health, actively play a role in promoting and supporting World Malaria Day. The activities and events that take place on or around World Malaria Day are often joint efforts between governments, non-government organizations, communities, and individuals. Not leaving Fight Malaria which is also causing awareness in the fight against malaria.
Many people, as well as commercial businesses and not-for-profit organizations, will use the day as an opportunity to donate money towards key malaria interventions. Many fundraising events are held to support the prevention, treatment, and control of malaria. Some people may also use the observance to write letters or petitions to political leaders, calling for greater support towards protecting and treating people who are at risk of malaria. Many newspapers, websites, and magazines, as well as television and radio stations, may use World Malaria Day as the chance to promote or publicize awareness campaigns about malaria.
World Malaria Day is a global observance and not a public holiday.
Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through the bites of infected mosquitoes. About half of the worlds’ population is at risk of malaria, particularly those in lower-income countries especially the sub-Saharan countries of Africa.
It infects more than 500 million people each year and kills more than one million people, according to (WHO) However, Malaria is preventable and curable.
At the moment there is no vaccine for malaria but other preventative measures such as sleeping in mosquito treated bed nets, using mosquito repellents such as Roperfree mosquito repellent which can be easily purchased via www.fightmalaria.co.uk/roperfree 24/7. As the battle against malaria is intensifying and globally uniting the world to defeat the common enemy Fight Malaria is now providing resourceful information at www.fightmalaria.co.uk
The purpose of the event is to give countries in affected regions the chance to learn from each other’s experiences and support one another’s efforts. World Malaria Day also enables new donors to join in a global partnership against malaria, and for research and academic institutions to reveal scientific advances to the public. The day also gives international partners, companies, and foundations a chance to showcase their efforts and reflect on how to scale up what has worked.
Roll Back Malaria (RBM) partnership is at the forefront in uniting different organizations to focus on strategies and implementation to end malaria by 2030. We should forget the gentleman I call Mr. Cash – Bill Gates and Melinda foundation who have worked tirelessly plus offering massive donations to end the deadly disease of malaria via their foundations.
As we celebrate the World Malaria Day of April 25, 2018, Fight Malaria in collaboration with Roperfree would like to thank all the key players in the fight against malaria.
As charity begins at home I would like to notify that the celebrations of World Malaria Day in Uganda will be held in Mpigi and we take this opportunity to that the WHO health organization officer Mr. Edmond Mwembazi and Rukia Nakamatte plus Dr. Jimmy Opigo for giving a chance Fight Malaria/ Roperfree to fully participate in this great occasion of humanitarian mission as life is the most precious thing on earth. No one deserves to die of malaria anymore and we anticipating when malaria will be history.
Any contribution is highly appreciated to Fight Malaria as to continue to cause awareness in their resourceful information which got attention to Charlie Webster as she appreciated the good work and efforts they provide in providing education material to aid the prevention of malaria globally, for more details contact www.fightmalaria.co.uk any donation is regarded as a life savior token against malaria.
