World Malaria Day 2018


The UNDP Global Fund Partnership currently supports malaria programmes in seven countries and one region (Bolivia, Afghanistan, Djibouti, Burundi, Chad, Guinea-Bissau, Sao Tome and Principe and Multicountry Western Pacific ). Working closely with national governments and civil society organisations, these programmes  have contributed to protecting millions of households against malaria, preventing the spread of the disease. These results include:

73 million bed nets distributed




72 million cases of malaria treated

Close to Elimination


Malaria is endemic in Bolivia. The rain forests of the Amazon region provide a fertile breeding ground for mosquitoes. The tropical climate also brings heavy downpours and flooding, limiting access to healthcare for thousands of vulnerable people in remote and hard to reach locations.

So how has Bolivia nearly eliminated malaria? Find out how UNDP and the Global Fund have been working with the Bolivian government to provide early diagnosis and treatment, strengthen health systems and leave no one behind to beat malaria for good.
