 With Decline in Malaria Cases, Myanmar Targets to Get Rid of Malaria by 2030
Malaria cases have gradually declined in Myanmar since 2011. With this development, it is likely to attain the millennium development goal of reducing the malaria-related death by half in 2015.

Health authorities have revealed that Myanmar has set a target of getting rid of malaria by 2030.

Official statistics have revealed that 9 in 1,000 people in Myanmar were infected with malaria in 2007 but the number declined to 5.13 in 2013. The mosquito-borne disease killed 0.48 in 100,000 people in 2013, down from 2.18 in 2007.
