“The fight against malaria leaves no one behind,” he added.

About 3,2 billion people – nearly half of the world’s population – are at risk of malaria.

In 2015, there were an estimated 214 million new cases of malaria and

438,000 deaths, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa.

In Nigeria, it accounts for 10,4 percent (180 000) of deaths, the third-worst killer after respiratory infections and HIV/AIDS.
