This year World Health Organization promotes the "Zero Malaria Starts with Me" campaign and calls for individual solidarity for community and global protection against malaria. This is a day that advocates for a grassroots movement that aims to prioritize malaria on the political agenda, mobilize additional resources, and empower communities to take ownership of malaria prevention and care. Reducing the suffering and death from malaria has been one of the top agendas of this millennium. This day speaks to every dimension and statistics of malaria on a global scale.

Malaria Data:
Between 2000 and 2014, the number of malaria-related deaths fell by 40% worldwide, from an estimated 743 000 to 446 000. But in recent years, progress has ground to a standstill. According to the WHO's World Malaria Report 2019, there were no global gains in reducing new infections over the period 2014 to 2018. Nearly as many people died from malaria in 2018 as the year before. One simple bed net can save people from a mosquito bite and malaria-related death, today is the day to be aware of that fact.

Urgent actions are needed to get back on track, Corona crisis of past years has redefined a new form of national power, and from now on, the power of the nation will not only depend on artillery and amenities but also on the degreegree of the resilient health system. Malaria is an immediate threat and a challenge to mankind, let's develop solidarity to combat this.

Let's join in our effort to get zero malaria.

Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
