Dear Partners,

As monsoon season continues in many parts of the Asia Pacific region, APLMA continues to work closely and remind with partners, national programmes, and communities to stay vigilant against the threat of malaria. APLMA is also looking forward to the upcoming C20 and T20 Summits next week leading up to the India G20 in September.

Also, World Mosquito Day is on August 20th and APLMA is partnering to organise two webinars: malaria, climate change, and IDPs in Pakistan & the future of gene drives in Asia Pacific. Stay tuned for more information!

Best wishes,

The APLMA Secretariat
