star this property answer text <p>In 2013-14 we estimate that the UK Government spend on malaria control was £536 million. This has been calculated using the methodology detailed in the Malaria Framework of Results. This can be found at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/67642/malaria-framework-for-results.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/67642/malaria-framework-for-results.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Malaria death rates have been falling globally since 2010 and the UK investments have significantly contributed to this achievement. According to analysis of current trends by the World Health Organization, by 2015, six high burden countries are on track to halve malaria mortality from a 2009 baseline and another six high burden countries are on track to achieve a 40-50% reduction in malaria attributable deaths.
