Fight against malaria has stalled, World Health Organisation says.

Progress in the fight against Malaria has stalled, the World Health Organisation warned this week. Funding has levelled off and after years of progress, countries where malaria is endemic have become complacent. The W.H.O’s annual Malaria Report finds five million more people died of the disease in 2016 than in the previous year. Many scientists now say new tools once considered radical, may be required to achieve the ultimate goal of eradicating malaria.
