23 October 2014 : - The Roll Back Malaria Partnership is pleased to support the first Global Day of Action for the Right to Health and its aims to empower people, mobilize sustained funding and promote a just, rapid transition to universal health coverage. A rights-based approach to health makes the world a better place for all, including those vulnerable to malaria. In Africa alone, malaria-related illnesses and mortality cost regional economies an estimated US$12 billion per year. Investment in health helps protect the right to health, prosperity and socioeconomic development.
