Nearly one million people die of malaria every year, mostly infants and young children, and more than 40 percent of the world’s population lives in malaria-endemic regions. NIAID established the International Centers of Excellence for Malaria Research (ICEMR), a global network of independent research centers in malaria-endemic settings, to provide the knowledge, tools, and evidence-based strategies crucial to understanding, controlling, and, ultimately, preventing malaria.
