Mohammed recovers from malaria clinic in Somalia's capital. Nine out of ten deaths from the disease worldwide are recorded in Africa.

A cost saving of about $ 12 billion per year. Concentration of nearly 80% of cases worldwide. Nine out of ten deaths from the disease worldwide registered on the continent.

The numbers of malaria in Africa, considered alarming by the World Health Organization (WHO), have led experts to create a new plan that aims to be reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals for the period post-2015.

The vice president of the Partners Forum Angolan Malaria, Jaime Molossande, spoke of the need for society participation in the project "Roll Back Malaria"

"We have to reflect deeply, to the role that partnerships play in the fight against malaria. Understand So we, the journalists, who are involved in the communication. As they say 'soft water in hard rock sticking up both hits' . We look at our settings in which people should know what their role should be, because the causes and consequences are identified, "he said.

According to data from the UN Program for Development (UNDP) determinants such as household, agricultural practices smarter and more robust health systems helped to ensure greater access to broadcast programs and treatment of malaria.

The deputy director of the agency, Rebeca Grynspan, said there was only through mosquito nets and better medicines that the disease has been eliminated in northern Europe and North America.

Despite the increased coverage with vector control interventions, it is considered that efforts should be integrated into development sectors to enable the control and elimination of the disease in a sustainable manner.
