DFID is the second largest international funder to the global fight against malaria, spending £499million in 2016/17. Over the last five years, all of our funding on malaria control, apart from the proportion which is spent on research and development of products and the funding for commodity procurement, contributes to strengthening health systems. For example, investment into malaria surveillance systems, training health workers in malaria care for children and improving malaria drug supply systems provide core skills and infrastructure that can be used to address other diseases.
