MaHPIC Mission Statement
The mission of the MaHPIC is to develop unprecedented research data sets pertaining to malaria infections that can be used to develop new diagnostics, drugs and vaccines to reduce the global suffering caused by this disease.
The map shown, from the World Health Organization’s 2016 World Malaria Report, shows the global distribution of malaria from 2000 to 2015.
"The World Malaria Report, published annually by WHO, tracks progress and trends in malaria control and elimination across the globe. It is developed by WHO in collaboration with ministries of health and a broad range of partners. The 2016 report draws on data from 91 countries and areas with ongoing malaria transmission."
