Currently the death rate is 1 million people per year, mostly children younger than 5 years. Of the 109 counties endemic for malaria, declines in malaria deaths have occurred in Ethiopia, Eritrea, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, and São Tomé and Príncipe. Zanzibar has reduced deaths to near zero, and Zambia has reduced the number of children carrying the malaria parasite by 50%.
