Mosquitos aren’t popular; there is no getting around that. They’re not only annoying pests, but they also help spread a fatal disease.

Malaria is often seen as a disease that only exists in parts of the world, but did you know that nearly half of the world’s population are at risk of contracting it?! That’s 3.2 billion people who don’t have access to resources to protect them from these 6-legged creatures. While that’s a scary number, great donors, like the Global Fund, have helped reduce the mortality rate from malaria by 47% since 2000!

This World Malaria Day, as we are coming up to the end of the Millennium Development Goals, we thought it would be a good idea to bring everyone up to speed with the latest facts about malaria. Then share your favorite fact on Facebook by clicking the image:
