Recognizing World Mosquito Day: August 20th, 2021
This day commemorates the 1897 discovery of female mosquitoes transmitting malaria between humans.
Malaria is not a new enemy of humans; it dates to back Mesopotamia and is known as the greatest killer of all time.
In 2019, there were an estimated 229 million cases of malaria worldwide.
Please join us this week as we talk about malaria, mosquitos and our efforts to prevent and eliminate Malaria.
Be sure to join us on social media for #WorldMosquitoDay as we discuss mosquitoes, malaria, and the work we are doing at Malaria Partners International.
