A CENTURY ago, malaria existed nearly everywhere in the world. It was endemic in America and Britain until the early 1950s. By 1970 much of the rich world had wiped it out. Today, 107 countries are malaria-free. Another 28 are in the elimination stage, meaning they have less than one diagnosed case per 1,000 people per year.
Malaria today kills 450,000 people a year. For a call to wipe out Malaria by 2040 and more information and source turn to the recent report by the UN and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
