World Mosquito Day 2019
On the 20 August of 1897, Sir Ronald Ross discovered that female mosquitoes transmit malaria between humans. Since then, we've followed its devastating effect. In fact, it’s said to have killed half the people that ever lived - 54 billion people. Despite huge progress in the fight against our deadliest enemy, global efforts have now stalled and, for the first time, we're seeing malaria rising in the highest-burden countries. We can't let this happen. Together, we can be the generation that ends malaria for good.
