U.S. #1194 shows both the Great Seal of the United States, and the emblem of the World Health Organization (a chapter of the United Nations). It commemorates a “World United Against Malaria,” in response to the mosquito-carried infectious disease. Malaria causes fever, convulsions, and joint pain. Victims can enter comas and are in danger of dying. Today, 1 to 3 million people die from malaria each year, and hundreds of millions of people are infected.
 
In 1961, in his Inaugural Address, U.S. President John F. Kennedy announced, “Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, and eradicate disease.” It was part of U.S. commitment to worldwide efforts in the 1950s and 1960s to reduce the threat of malaria.
