Regional Cross-Border Cooperation: Critical to Sustained Malaria Elimination and Regional Health Security in South Asia
Cross-border collaboration is key for malaria elimination in South Asia and global health security.
APLMA partnered to host a high-level reception uniting new and old supporters of the Global Fund.
On the occasion of World Malaria Day and World Immunization Week, influential global health figures share lessons learned in the global fight against two age-old diseases, malaria and polio – and more recently, COVID-19 – and how we should tackle existing and future pandemics.
The Asia-Pacific region is close to eliminating malaria, but to “finish the job” there must be a focus on the most vulnerable communities, said Sarthak Das, CEO at APLMA.
