While all people exposed to malaria can be affected, the risks of exposure and limitations to accessing adequate prevention and treatment remain disproportionately high amongst women (UNDP 2015) and unequal gender roles and gender dynamics give rise to different vulnerabilities (Measure Evaluation 2017). A combination of biological, socio-economic and cultural factors increase susceptibility amongst women specifically adolescent girls between 15-19 years, women living with HIV, pregnant women and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals (Factsheets on malaria and the SDGs 2015); (Measure Evolution 2017). About 70% of malaria deaths are among pregnant women and children under five.
