Malaria is a contagious, sometimes lethal disease. It is caused by Plasmodium, a little parasite that mosquitoes transmit to humans. Malaria may be caused by four different plasmodium species; however, plasmodium falciparum is the one that most often results in fatal cases.

Due to increased funding from regional governments, the global market for anti-malaria drugs is likewise growing rapidly. This money ought to make it feasible for research companies like Medicines for Malaria Venture to keep looking at potential lead chemicals that might combat malaria. For instance, in November 2017, the US Agency for International Development (USAID) gave US$ 9 million to Medicines for Malaria Venture to be used for three projects: a pharmacovigilance study of Pyramax (pyronaridine-artesunate), a SERC Phase III research to establish a single-exposure revolutionary cure, and a study to evaluate the efficacy of DSM265, a prospective single-exposure radical cure. These improvements are anticipated to drive the global market for malaria therapy.
