Malaria No More : Expectations for Eradication

"This policy brief explores the possible impact should Africa eliminate malarial infection by 2025. Between 2015 and 2050, when comparing the International Futures Base Case with a Malaria Eradication scenario (explained below), the continent could experience the following benefits: Eliminate 12 million deaths from malaria, with the greatest absolute reduction in Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo(DRC). Add more than 50 million years of healthy life Increase overall economic output – by nearly US$ 430 billion largely due to increases in production Increase per capita income for Africans by more than US$ 30 per person in 2050 Prevent nearly 2,5 million people from living on less than US$ 1,25 per day in 2050."
