According to a WHO report released in December 2013, there were approximately 207 million cases of malaria in 2012. Although treatable and preventable, malaria continues to be a leading cause of child-death in Africa. 

On April 25, 2014, the global health community in Tokyo commemorated World Malaria Day by emphasizing the power one person has to make a difference and by focusing on Japan’s efforts to combat malaria. Dr. Toshihiro Horii, a Global Health Innovative Technology Fund (GHIT Fund) grant recipient from Osaka University, shared his experience working to develop a malaria vaccine and Mr. Tatsuo Mizuno, a vector control specialist with Malaria No More Japan (MNMJ), shared the importance of continued attention on this stifling disease. Anyango performed live, adding a vibrant flair to the event, and HGPI’s Dr. Kiyoshi Kurokawa provided the closing remarks. Malaria No More Japan (MNMJ), Japan Center for International Exchange (JCIE), and the GHIT Fund joined HGPI in co-organizing this unique event.
