World Malaria Report 2014

Malaria is the most important parasitic disease in the world accounting for over 500 million clinical infections and 1 million deaths every year. Ecologic change, economic and political instability, combined with escalating malaria drug resistance, has led to a worldwide resurgence of this parasitic disease. However, malaria is not just a problem in the developing world. The combination of burgeoning international travel and increasing drug resistance has resulted in a growing number of travelers at risk of contracting malaria. It is estimated that as many as 30,000 travelers from industrialized countries contract malaria each year. However, this incidence is likely to be an underestimate because of the prevalence of underreporting. The majority of P. falciparum cases imported into North America and Europe are acquired in Africa (85%) and travel to the African continent is currently on the rise.

The World Malaria Report 2014 summarizes information received from malaria-endemic countries and other sources, and updates the analyses presented in the 2013 report.

The World Malaria Report is WHO’s flagship malaria publication, released each year in December. It assesses global and regional malaria trends, highlights progress towards global targets, and describes opportunities and challenges in controlling and eliminating the disease. Most of the data presented in this report is for 2013.
