In 2010, about 3.3 billion people – almost half of the world’s population – were at risk of malaria. Every year, this leads to about 216 million malaria cases and an estimated 655.000 deaths. People living in the poorest countries are the most vulnerable, but aside from this, Malaria is also a threat to expatriates and travelers, posing a risk that should never  be overstated. World Malaria Day – which was instituted by the World Health Assembly at its 60th session in May 2007 – is a day for recognizing the global effort to provide effective control of malaria. It was celebrated 25th April and we remind you the importance of protecting all the employees at risk
