​Six African Nations Could be Malaria-Free by 2020

Six countries in Africa, the continent where malaria is most widespread, could be free of the disease by 2020, according to WHO

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says that six countries in Africa, the continent where malaria is most widespread, could be free of the disease by 2020.

In a report published to mark World Malaria Day, WHO says that one of the goals of its 2016-2030 programme against malaria is to wipe out the disease in at least 10 countries by the end of this decade.

In a press statement, the Geneva-based organisation estimates that 21 countries are in a position to achieve this goal, including six countries in the African Region, where the burden of the disease is heaviest.
