Since its founding, the Roll Back Malaria (RBM) Partnership has played a critical role in advancing global efforts to control and prevent malaria worldwide, resulting in one of the best global health success stories of the century. The determined support of RBM partners helped reduce malaria deaths by more than 60%, save almost 7 million lives and prevent more than 1 billion malaria cases between 2000 and 2015, effectively rolling back the deadly and devastating tide of malaria. This tremendous success has set the world on a path to end this disease for good, and put the RBM Partnership in position to focus on the new malaria elimination agenda. Consistent with our renewed focus, the RBM Board reviewed the RBM brand considering the success to-date and our forward-looking ambitious, global goals. Based on these findings, the Board agreed to evolve the RBM brand to honor its legacy, while adding forward-looking elements that affirm our tie to the elimination agenda and determination to work globally to end malaria for good. Since mid-July, a team comprised of the RBM Board Strategic Communications Partner Committee (SCPC) members and SCPC Co-chairs worked with an agency tendered in accordance with UNOPS processes to evolve the RBM brand. Today, we are pleased to introduce the new name, look and feel for the RBM Partnership to End Malaria. Read more >>

Dear Partners, 

Please join us for a WHA side event hosted by The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia in collaboration with the Roll Back Malaria Partnership

Co-sponsored by: Republic of Angola, Republic of Botswana, Republic of Congo, Principality of Monaco, New Zealand, United States of America

Where: Palais des Nations, Room 8

When: 18h – 19h15, Thursday 25th May 2017

Since 2000, we have made great strides in curbing the malaria epidemic. Between 2000 and 2015, global malaria incidence fell by 21% and mortality rates decreased by 29%. Malaria mortality in Africa fell by 31%. Thanks to the mobilization of resources and political will, malaria control and elimination efforts have resulted in nearly 7 million lives saved and over US$2 trillion added to the economies of malaria affected countries.

We are now embarking on new chapter in the fight against malaria. This final effort may be our most challenging yet. To succeed we must adapt. Complacency is not an option: every day more than 1,100 people still die from malaria - a preventable, treatable disease.

A malaria-free world is within our grasp. This requires the highest political and financial investments from donor and malaria-affected countries.

Together, we can end malaria for good.

Please note: In order to gain access to this event, participants must already hold a pass to the UN.
