Cape Verde triumphs: Eradicates malaria, leading sub-Saharan Africa’s health revolution

In a monumental achievement, Cape Verde has become the first sub-Saharan African country in 50 years to eradicate Malaria, marking three consecutive years without transmission. The island nation’s success is attributed to robust preventative measures, including free access to malaria diagnoses for international travelers and migrants.

Cape Verde’s Health Minister, Dr. Filomena Gonçalves, hails the collective dedication of health professionals, communities, and international partners. This victory echoes the triumph of Mauritius in 1973 and underscores the power of concerted efforts in advancing public health.
