This report provides an analysis of malaria funding trends for control and elimination and research and development (R&D) activities over time compared to the estimated need presented in the Global Malaria Action Plan (GMAP). It also looks ahead to assess projected funding availability. The analysis is timely as the global community is in the process of evaluating progress on the MDGs, and looks beyond 2015 to set new and updated malaria targets. As it finds, while funding for malaria has risen significantly over time, it is far below estimated need and the gap is significant.
