Since 2000, malaria deaths have fallen by 47% globally, and by 54% in the African region, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The use of rapid diagnostic tests and treatment with artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) have played a key role in this great progress. However, malaria still kills in Africa, where 90% of global malaria deaths occur, killing more than 430,000 children a year.
