DFID contributes to the global effort to tackle malaria through bilateral programmes in countries, research, multilateral funding to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and the World Health Organisation (WHO), and through strengthening health systems in malaria affected countries.

The total estimated UK spend on malaria was £332 million in 2015/16, £499 million in 2016/17 and £481 million in 2017/18. All direct bilateral malaria spend and relevant multilateral contributions are available in Statistics on International Development. DFID is currently the second largest global funder of the effort against malaria and will remain a leading global donor in the future.
