Today, World Malaria Day, is a time for all of us to recognize and reflect on our collective action and achievements in the fight to end malaria, especially over the last year.
As the flagship global service delivery project of the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), PMI Impact Malaria stands with the RBM Partnership to End Malaria and other partner organizations in promoting “Zero Malaria Starts With Me” – a grassroots campaign that aims to keep malaria high on the political agenda, mobilize resources, and empower communities to take ownership of malaria prevention and care.
We understand that progress against malaria has stalled and so we affirm WHO’s view that “urgent action is needed to get the global response to malaria back on track – and ownership of the challenge lies in the hands of countries most affected by malaria.” PMI Impact Malaria lives and breathes this.
We support national malaria control programs in PMI focus countries as they fight malaria and save lives by strengthening diagnosis, treatment, and drug-based prevention, particularly for children and pregnant women. As our project enters its second year, we are implementing, learning, sharing best practices and lessons learned, and, ultimately, advancing malaria service delivery.
I invite you to learn with us by exploring where our project has been and where we are going:
Thank you for your time, support, and partnership as we work together to accelerate progress towards a malaria-free world.
