Roll Back Malaria,
Protect Women and Children
On April 25th, we all celebrated Africa Malaria Day.
The theme for this year's event was
'Insecticide Treated Nets and effective malaria treatment for pregnant women and young children by 2005'
and the slogan was
'Roll Back Malaria, Protect Women and Children!'
Africa Malaria Day 2003 marked the third anniversary of the Abuja Declaration.
We hope that you all took part in events and activities to celebrate Africa Malaria Day 2003. Let's use the moment generated on April 25th to get behind Roll Back Malaria's efforts to halve the burden of malaria by 2010.
We would love to hear about how you got involved and what events you organised in your community. You can tell us what went on by e-mailing us at InfoRBM@who.int. Also, if you took any photographs or have any reports from Africa Malaria Day, then send them to us and we will share them with the world.
