During the past decade, a concerted effort by endemic countries, donors and global malaria partners led to strengthened malaria control around the world. The scale-up of malaria prevention and control interventions had the greatest impact in countries with high malaria transmission; 58% of the 1.1 million lives saved during this period were in the ten highest burden countries.

However, after a rapid expansion of malaria prevention and control programmes between 2004 and 2009, global funding to fight malaria levelled off between 2010 and 2012. According to the World malaria report 2012, a funding slowdown could reverse recent gains in the fight against one of the world’s leading infectious killers.
