Malaria still continues to spread across African communities like wildfire. Today, Africa represents 90% of malaria related cases globally with 194 million lives at a considerably high risk. According to a WHO report, $ 2.7 billion was invested in malaria programs globally in 2016; an amount which represents a paltry 41% of the estimated $ 6.5 billion required annually, and crucial to achieving the 2030 global malaria targets (WHO 2016). Total funding reached $3.1 billion in 2017 (WHO 2017). However, Sub-Saharan Africa still accounts for a bulk of the global malaria burden on an annual basis. The most vulnerable population are at great risk of falling victim to the perilous health hazards posed by malaria.
