Successes in the fight against malaria

Since 2000, global efforts to control and eliminate malaria have brought down malaria mortality rates by 60 per cent worldwide and by 66 per cent in Africa. However, much work remains.

Now is the time for the global health community to sustain its commitments in the final push to defeat malaria. Through the combined power of institutions, individuals, and the communities they represent, more people are receiving prevention and treatment tools than ever before.

In partnership with various organisations, governments and institutions, ExxonMobil is proud to do its part in driving and maintaining these recent successes in the fight against malaria.

Since 2000, ExxonMobil has made contributions of more than US $145 million to the cause. Our support has allowed our partners to:

  • Reach more than 125 million people throughout Africa and Asia with 13.9 million bed nets, 3.8 million doses of antimalarial drugs and 2.6 million rapid diagnostic kits
  • Train 520,000 health care workers and counselors to help prevent, diagnose and treat malaria
  • Hold 2.5 million community health sessions
  • Provide technical assistance that leveraged US $791 million in grants to Angola and Nigeria from the Global Fund – US $218 million for malaria projects
  • Helped fund three pediatric anti-malarial drugs
