The article presents the World Malaria Report 2009 from the World Health Organization (WHO) released on December 15, 2009. The report shows that the international funding to fight malaria has increased, amounted to 1.7 billion dollars in 2009, from 730 million dollars in 2006. According to Matthew Lynch, director of the Global Program on Malaria at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the funding is good news yet it is far below the need in studying global control.
