Malaria has been a major public health problem in India. Despite several challenges, India has made great strides in the past two decades towards eliminating malaria. Ending Malaria remains a top government priority in India.
World Malaria Day, annual observance held on April 25 to raise awareness of the global effort to control and ultimately eradicate malaria. World Malaria Day is observed to recognize the existence of malaria in countries worldwide and to bring greater awareness to the global fight against the disease.
