Malaria Day in the Americas

Campeones de la MalariaMalaria Day in the Americas

“ZERO MALARIA STARTS WITH ME”

November 6 is observed annually as Malaria Day in the Americas.

Malaria Day in the Americas which will be observed for the thirteenth time on 6 November 2019, is envisioned to be the platform upon which countries of the Region can engage in a year-round aggressive campaign against the disease.

Urgent action is needed to get the global response to malaria back on track – and ownership of the challenge lies in the hands of countries most affected by malaria. On the occasion of Malaria Day in the Americas 2019, and in keeping with this consolidated effort by the global malaria community to highlight the reported successes and the remaining challenges in malaria today, the Region is adapting the same theme used for the commemoration of World Malaria Day 2019: “Zero malaria starts with me”. Stakeholders in the Region have the option of using this theme to energize the commitment to fight malaria.

 

 

 

Malaria Day in the Americas seeks to attain the following objectives:

  • Improve the communication process and extension of advocacy work to all stakeholders and target audiences.
  • Enhance visibility/interest on Malaria in the Region of Americas and the global scourge that the disease brings to peoples of the world.
  • Increase awareness and understanding of the key issues among target audience/population.
  • Catalyze change of attitudes and modification of behaviors in the affected population.
  • Generate advocacy/support from the public, policy makers, private sector and strategic partners.
  • Encourage increased and enduring support to efforts against malaria, including the elimination of local transmission in areas where such is feasible.

Partners and malaria stakeholders in the Region are encouraged to consider this concept and objectives in the commemoration of Malaria Day in the Americas 2019.
