Malaria and Gender Equity
January 26 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Women and girls are at high risk of dying of malaria. The unique barriers to care that women and girls face creates devastating setbacks to their health. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt malaria prevention and treatment programs, it is more important than ever to recognize the significant role gender plays in malaria morbidity. Combatting gender inequity is essential to fighting malaria.
