Approximately 550,000 people die of malaria, each year and 90 per cent of the deaths are in Africa, according to a global partnership of UN agencies established to fight the disease.
The economic cost of malaria on the continent is estimated to be US$ 12 billion in lost productivity every year.
The World Health Organization (WHO) says that malaria, which is caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through the bites of infected mosquitoes, is preventable and curable.
