Roll Back Malaria Progress and Impact Series: Number 2, 2010 - World Malaria Day 2010 Africa Update

The report, released on World Malaria Day 2010, focuses on the fight against malaria through prevention and treatment in Africa and highlights the importance of achieving and sustaining malaria control as a key strategy for achieving many of the Millennium Development Goals in malaria endemic African countries.

The report describes efforts made by several African countries in rapidly scaling up coverage of key malaria control interventions, owing to substantial increase in funding in recent years. Funding however fell short of the estimated $6 billion needed in 2010 for global implementation of malaria control interventions.
