Countries around the world need to do more to fight the spread of malaria, according a new report by the World Health Organisation [WHO].
The report says countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia are particularly at risk.
The disease affects about 200 million people and causes the death of about 600,000 each year – many of them children.
WHO has called for billions of dollars more to be invested every year.
