Event Name: World Malaria Day
Event Description: World Malaria Day (25 April) is a chance to shine a spotlight on the global effort to control malaria, both the remarkable progress that has been made and the need to sustain these efforts. Each year, Roll Back Malaria partner organizations unite around a common World Malaria Day theme. "Invest in the future: defeat malaria" is the theme partners chose for the next three years to call attention to #thebigpush needed to reach the 2015 Millennium Development Goals and defeat malaria in the future. The Roll Back Malaria Global Partnership for a Malaria Free World is in the lead for World Malaria Day.
UN Sponsor: World Health Organization (WHO)
