World Malaria Day: map to help Malaria elimination worldwide

Tuesday 25th April is World Malaria Day, and we’re hosting a Global 24 hour mapathon to support eradication of Malaria worldwide. You can join as an individual, a small group of family and friends, or host a bigger mapathon event!


Ways to get involved:

  • Map Malaria elimination tasks available here

  • Download the Mapswipe app and swipe through Cambodia and Laos.

  • Share your stories and pictures on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #mappingagainstmalaria and make sure to tag us @hotosm

  • If you're running an event, you can register it here, and check out if there’s anyone who might want to support an event in your local area by checking the map at the bottom here


The top two mappers on World Malaria Day will be the lucky recipients of a HOT Thank You pack full of HOT stash, as a token of our appreciation.
