Headline: The fight against malaria is stalled: in 2019, there were 229 million cases and 409,000 deaths
Although the number of deaths has been reduced by 44% since 2000, the percentage of progress against the disease has slowed down in recent years. Funding shortages for proven malaria weapons are one cause of this stagnation. The United Nations agency in charge of ensuring global health calls for intensifying the fight against malaria, which especially affects Africa.
