Working Paper 312 - Quality Homes for Sustainable Malaria Prevention in Africa
Despite a sharp decline in malaria cases, the mosquito transmitted diseases continue to affect millions of people in developing countries. In 2015, 214 million malaria cases were reported in 95 countries and an estimated 438,000 people died because of the disease (WHO, 2015). The malaria burden is overwhelmingly concentrated in Africa with 88% of cases and 90% of deaths in 2015. Within Africa, only 10 countries constitute 87% of high incidence areas—DRC, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Mozambique, Uganda, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Guinea, Mali and Togo.
