Fast forward to 2020 and the malaria landscape has changed considerably. On a global scale, progress has levelled off; according to our latest World malaria report, no gains were achieved in reducing malaria case incidence over the last five years. Worryingly, malaria is on the rise in many countries with a high burden of the disease. Critical 2020 targets of WHO’s Global technical strategy for malaria 2016–2030 will be missed. The COVID-19 pandemic has complicated the picture for malaria even further.
