Between 2020 and 2022 a total of 12 countries were certified malaria free by WHO. These countries are: United Arab Emirates, Morocco, Turkmenistan, Armenia, Argentina, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Paraguay, Sri Lanka, Algeria, China and El Salvador.
These countries have been certified malaria free by the WHO.
” Malaria free certification is awarded by WHO once a country has provided evidence that indigenous transmission of malaria has been interrupted throughout the entire country in the previous 3 consecutive years. Following 3 consecutive years of reporting zero indigenous cases, China and El Salvador have been certified malaria free in 2021,” says the latest WHO report.
