Venezuela faces challenges affecting health care

In the United States, according to a study by the World Health Organization (WHO), the incidence of malaria cases increased in Brazil, Nicaragua and above all in Venezuela.

"In addition, as we have seen in Venezuela, the number of cases we are registered in the American continent that we see in Brazil is also remarkable."Spanish scientist Pedro Alonso said.

"Venezuela is going through a period of political and economic difficulties that affect the functioning of health care," he said, "historically, it is one of the most progressive countries in the fight against malaria."

The stagnation in financing the fight against malaria, according to WHO, is one of the main problems of progress.

Despite the slight improvement in the death rate, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that two million people who were infected with malaria in 2017.

Data are included in the 2018 World Malaria Report, presented last year by Maputo, conducted by the Spanish scientist Pedro Alonso, director of the WHO Global Malaria Program.

"No one should die of malaria. But the world is facing a new reality: with the stagnation of progress, we are at risk of losing business, investment and success for years to reduce the number of people suffering from the disease.The report was based on WHO Director General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

In 2017, there were 219 million cases of malaria, and 219 million of them were killed, 435,000 people were killed, 456,000 deaths in 2016.

Of the total deaths, 266,000 were below the age of five (61%), so more than 700 children died in 2017, equivalent to a child killed every two days with malaria.
