The UN Program for Development (UNDP) launched on Tuesday (24), a global initiative to combat malaria.

Despite the 50% drop in malaria cases registered in 43 countries, the UN agency is creating the "Multisectoral Action Network for Malaria" in order to develop greater coordination between different sectors involved in controlling the disease that kills 660,000 people per year, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa.

According to the UNDP, the goal is to identify actions between social and environmental determinants that cause malaria. The agency notes that the current strategies should be complemented with more partnerships to be accelerated disease control.

Data released by the UNDP show that malaria is associated with lack of socio-economic development, poverty, marginalization and exploitation.

The action network provides a roadmap for a more integrated approach in the fight against the disease, in order to reach the goal six of the Millennium Development Goals: stop the incidence of malaria by the end of 2015.
