Cases of malaria in Ghana have reduced by seventy percent. Malaria deaths have also reduced from more than six thousand annually to one thousand 200.

These were revealed at this year's commemoration of World Malaria Day and launch of the Ghana Malaria Foundation.

The Program Manager of the National Malaria Control Program, Dr. Constance Bart-Plange reiterated that under five deaths have also reduced considerably.
