New malaria infections

What does it mean ?

This is the number of confirmed new cases of malaria reported each year per every 1,000 people.

Why does it matter ?

Knowing the incidence rate of malaria is required for determining the need for treatment and services, particularly in more at-risk populations and in areas of limited resources. Changes in the incidence rate can indicate the burden of malaria on a population and allow for targeted interventions in high priority areas. Finally, it can help to judge the success of malaria control programs and their implementation. The malaria incidence rate is an indicator for monitoring Sustainable Development Goal 3: Health and Wellbeing; Target 3.3: By 2030, end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases and combat hepatitis, water-borne diseases and other communicable diseases. It is also part of the Global Strategy for Women's, Children's and Adolescents' Health (2016-2030) under Survive: End preventable deaths.

How is it collected ?

Preferred sources of data are surveillance systems reporting complete data on malaria cases. These sources, however, are rarely available for large populations. Data on malaria cases usually need to be corrected for extent of health service use, incomplete reporting and lack of case confirmation. In areas of high malaria transmission with limited health service data but with good data on parasite prevalence the number of malaria cases can be estimated from parasite prevalence. The population at risk, which is the number of people living in areas where malaria transmission happens, is estimated using risk mapping and population data.

More about indicator and sources

The global target for 2030 is to: reduce malaria case incidence globally compared with 2015 by at least 90%. However, countries may also set their own national or subnational targets, which may differ from the global targets. Read more from this link:

More information on calculations

This indicator is derived from the number of malaria cases divided by the population at risk i.e. the number of people living in areas where malaria transmission happens. The population at risk is estimated using risk mapping and population data.
