23 April 2014 : - The Roll Back Malaria Partnership has initiated the process of developing the second Global Malaria Action Plan (GMAP2) for the period 2016-2025. The crafting of the GMAP2 is taking a highly participatory approach involving stakeholders from across the RBM constituencies, including Governments, Bilateral & Multilateral Agencies, Foundations, Research & Academia, Civil Society and the Private Sector. Regional consultations are already underway, whilst key informant interviews and country level consultations are set to commence soon. The process is being overseen by the GMAP2 Task Force, and closely coordinated with the elaboration of the WHO Global Technical Strategy for Malaria. The GMAP2 will provide a global framework for action around which partners can coordinate their efforts to control and eliminate malaria. It is being developed to guide the financing and implementation of the Global Technical Strategy. Click here to participate in the process of creating the GMAP2 document.
