Resumen
The World Malaria Report 2012 summarizes information received from 104 malaria-endemic countries and other sources, and updates the analyses presented in the 2011 report. It highlights the progress made towards the global malaria targets set for 2015 and describes current challenges for global malaria control and elimination.

The World Malaria Report 2012 brings together the latest available data from malaria-endemic countries and partners, and contains valuable analyses of progress and trends. Behind the statistics and graphs lies a great and needless tragedy: malaria - an entirely preventable and treatable disease - still takes the life of an African child every minute. The most vulnerable communities in the world continue to lack sufficient access to long-lasting insecticidal nets, indoor residual spraying, diagnostic testing, and artemisinin-based combination therapies. Unfortunately, only modest increases in access to these interventions were observed between 2010 and 2011 - the first such plateauing in the past 5 years. It is imperative that we act now to ensure that the recent momentum, and its results, are not diminished.
