Did you know that the link between mosquitoes and malaria transmission was first discovered by Sir Ronald Ross in 1897? 🦟On #WorldMosquitoDay, let’s raise awareness, support research, and implement effective strategies to #endmalaria.
An estimated 219 million cases of malaria are recorded every year across the world. This #WorldMosquitoDay 🦟, we must raise awareness of the urgent need for increased funding to #endmalaria.
On #WorldMosquitoDay, we are shining a light on the power of #innovation in the fight against deadly mosquito-borne diseases like #malaria! Today we stand united in our commitment to creating a world where malaria no longer threatens our communities. #EndMalaria
Innovation is the key to achieving malaria eradication🗝 By addressing drug and insecticide resistance, enhancing prevention, and improving diagnostics, we can make significant strides in the fight against malaria. This #WorldMosquitoDay, let’s innovate for a #malariafree world!🌎🦟
Climate change is intensifying the spread of deadly diseases like #malaria🌎🦟As temperatures rise, mosquitoes can thrive in new territories, putting new communities at risk. Tackling the connection between #globalwarming and malaria is crucial for global health.

Global efforts to end malaria have saved more than 11.7 million lives and prevented over 2 billion malaria cases since 2000, but our work is not yet done. If we stay the course in our commitment to innovation, ending malaria is possible. With robust, urgent investment, we can protect past gains and accelerate progress toward a malaria-free world. Join us to create a buzz this World Mosquito Day! #WorldMosquitoDay #EndMalaria
Mosquitoes remain the world’s deadliest creatures, responsible for over 600,000 deaths a year. #WorldMosquitoDay is an opportunity to raise awareness of the dangers of malaria-carrying mosquitoes, and to shine the spotlight on the ongoing efforts in the fight against the world’s deadliest creature. To end malaria once and for all, we must stay ahead of an ever-evolving parasite and mosquito, through continued investment and innovation to deliver improved and transformative solutions to combat this disease and #endmalaria for good. #TimeToDeliverZeroMalaria #ZeroMalariaStartsWithMe
Today we come together on World Mosquito Day, to discuss the importance of tackling one of the world’s deadliest creatures: the mosquito. The mosquito’s impact on global health is immense, claiming more than 600,000 lives each year from malaria alone. Yet, innovators around the globe are responding by exploring groundbreaking techniques, from genetically engineered mosquitoes that reduce populations to advanced data analytics predicting breeding patterns. Today, we call for greater international collaboration to share knowledge and spark action to #endmalaria. #WorldMosquitoDay #EndMalaria
Did you know that #climatechange is creating a new problem for the fight against malaria? Rising temperatures and altered precipitation patterns are expanding mosquito habitats, allowing them to thrive in regions previously untouched by malaria. The migration of mosquitoes to these new territories puts new communities at risk of this deadly disease. In the face of these new challenges, there is an urgent need for collective action and change. Innovation and research has led to the development of several lifesaving and life preserving tools, such as insecticide treated nets and the world’s first malaria vaccine, but limited resources allocated for scaling up these solutions is holding back progress. This #WorldMosquitoDay, we encourage partners around the globe to continue to invest in research and innovate life-saving tools to #endmalaria. The time to scale up national malaria programmes is now.
