Though malaria remains both treatable and preventable, 350-500 million people worldwide are infected with the disease every year, with up to one million cases ending in death. Nearly 85 percent of the victims who die are younger than five years old.

Recent global efforts have contributed to declines in malaria-related sickness and death, but while the present available tools for controlling malaria are effective, they will not by themselves eliminate the disease. There is a need for new strategies to eliminate malaria.
