Last week we marked World Malaria Day, a day that reminds us of the remarkable progress we have made in the Asia Pacific region. As a community we have come so far with more countries than ever before growing closer to elimination. It was uplifting to see many of our partners take this moment to come together and united in our shared ambition of a malaria-free Asia Pacific. We thank you for your continued support and commitment to end malaria in our region.
In honor of World Malaria Day, we have rounded up the most important stories from APLMA-APMEN as well as from others across the region. You can explore them below.
