Eliminate Malaria from the Asia Pacific by 2030
At the 13th December 2021 virtual gathering hosted by the Ministry of Health Bhutan, Asia Pacific Leaders Malaria Alliance (APLMA) and Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network (APMEN), senior government officials from across the region recommitted to accelerate the fight against the devastating disease in a time marked by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Universal Health Coverage in Asia Pacific: Access to Services and Medicines for All - Malaria Elimination Depends on It!
Malaria in Asia Pacific and globally is a disease of poverty and an engine of inequality. The disease thrives where healthcare systems are weak and where the poor and most vulnerable lack affordable access to malaria prevention, diagnosis, and treatment services. Advancing Universal Health Coverage have the potential to accelerate malaria elimination while existing programs to control and eliminate malaria can act as entry points to strengthen primary health care systems. Making progress in one will advance progress on the other.
Asia Pacific Makes Steady Progress Against Malaria During the Pandemic, Yet Gaps Remain in Some High Burden Countries
The World Health Organisation’s annual World Malaria Report 2021, published today reveals that steady progress was made in 2020 across the Asia Pacific region in the fight against malaria. The Asia Pacific Leaders Malaria Alliance (APLMA) and Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network (APMEN) welcome overall progress in the region despite the challenges posed by COVID-19 but urge continued commitment and collaboration from countries to end malaria by 2030.
APLMA and APMEN, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, Royal Government of Bhutan, will be hosting a virtual Leaders Dialogue for Malaria Elimination on 13 December 2021
