Malaria Free Europe

Europe became the world’s first region to reach the zero-case milestone of indigenous malaria in 2015—falling from more than 90,000 cases in 1995.

Now, Europe must keep up the good fight to prevent its reintroduction, the focus of a high-level meeting in Turkmenistan slated for summer. Preventing the return of malaria in Europe’s at-risk countries will require sustained political will, a commitment to test and treat all malaria cases promptly, understanding of how it could be reintroduced and immediate intervention if local malaria transmission recurs.
