Reference: What is ZERO malaria 2030 campaign?
Bill Gates stated that “humanity is trying to see a great moment to overcome infections,” but the number of deaths due to diseases carried by mosquitoes such as malaria has decreased dramatically in recent years. The In the 10 years from 2000 to 2010, the death toll decreased by 60%.
Nevertheless, about half of the world's population is exposed to the threat of malaria.
In 2015, the international community adopted the “Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”. Goal 3 set an ambitious goal of “achieving zero malaria” for malaria.
For Japan, which has made significant contributions in the field of global health, it is important to have clear and specific goals and to materialize the efforts to achieve these figures. The world also urges Japanese testing and research institutions and companies to invest in further research and development, and strongly expects Japan to contribute to the global health field through continuous contributions to international organizations.
As Malaria No More Japan celebrated its 5th anniversary in 2017, it launched a campaign to support the international community's determination to achieve zero malaria by 2030.
In the campaign, in cooperation with companies, international organizations, researchers, governments, as well as celebrities, media, citizen organizations, cooperating organizations, etc., people in a wide range of fields tell about something that the mosquito carries, and participate in the campaign We will develop concrete actions and support programs.
From Japan to the world, we will promote initiatives aimed at a “world without malaria (zero malaria)”.

A network organization that was born as a result of the leaders of the Asia-Pacific countries, including Prime Minister Abe, who gathered at the East Asia Summit in 2014 expressed their commitment to eliminate malaria in Asia by 2030. Since last year, M2030 has been advocated and promoted by private companies through public relations campaigns.
