The World Malaria Day 2016 theme, “End Malaria for Good,” reflects a renewed global effort to eliminate malaria from countries with endemic malaria by the middle of this century. More than a century of global malaria control efforts resulted in the elimination of the disease from 24 countries by 1987, and progress toward elimination has accelerated in the last decade. In 2014, 16 additional countries reported no new annual cases, and in 2015, 33 additional countries reported fewer than 1,000 cases of malaria per year (1).
