The World Health Organization noted that malaria still kills a child every 2  minutes and no child should die because they cannot access life-saving services to prevent, detect and treat the disease.

Belize continues to work with health officials with a focus of Malaria elimination by this year and certification by 2022.

Earlier this year, the Minister of Health received vehicles for support program for the Regional Malaria Elimination Project and the 11th EDF Project.

The objective of the project is to strengthen the Malaria Elimination Implementation Strategy and to improve the Belize Health Information System.
