Will malaria ever go away?

http://www.economist.com/news/briefing/21672080-end-sight-one-humanitys-deadliest-plagues-breaking-fever?fsrc=scn/tw/te/pe/ed/end-sight-one-humanitys-deadliest-plagues-breaking-fever
I'm AS (genotype, sickle-cell carrier) and I think I have pretty strong malaria resistance - I usually end up with flu symptoms instead of the full-blown fever.  Lucky.  You? 
"Since 2000, malaria deaths around the world have fallen by nearly half. The steepest drop has come in sub-Saharan Africa, where 90% of fatalities occur. Malaria still kills around 450,000 people each year (see chart 1)—most of them children in Africa."
