Malaria Infections in Africa

Malaria infections

This is the last of our malaria questions. Tomorrow morning we’ll publish the answer in the comment section of this post, and we’ll also include the answer in our World Malaria Day post.


The answer to yesterday’s question 90 percent.

Ninety percent of those who die from malaria are African children.

Through our Malaria Intervention Fund, Compassion-assisted children have access to insecticide-treated mosquito nets and malaria prevention education, and those struggling with the disease have access to malaria medical treatment.
