The impressive gains described in the 2013 World Malaria Report – including some 3.3 million lives saved since 2000 -- would not have been possible without the financial and political commitment of the United States government and other international partners, said Dr. Carissa F. Etienne, Director of the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO), at a special event at the U.S. Capitol.
Efforts to control and eliminate malaria have saved an estimated 3.3 million lives since 2000, reducing malaria mortality rates by 45% globally and by 70% in the Americas, according to the World Malaria Report 2013, published by the World Health Organization (WHO).
