As a representative of regional leaders, APLMA has unique authority to engage all levels of government.

Much of the region is at a crossroads for malaria and other communicable diseases. Because diseases don’t recognize national borders, no one country can defeat them by itself. A regional response is required. By collaborating, countries can tackle these threats to their health systems in a harmonized way.

APLMA unites 22 governments in Asia-Pacific by convening senior officials beyond health, monitoring and reporting on progress and bottlenecks and facilitating cross-border collaboration, to devise and execute strategic solutions for the region. Upholding political commitment is imperative across all sectors of society, from Heads of States, Government Ministries, international bodies and multilateral institutions, to corporate leaders, academia, civil society, thought leaders and influencers.

Uphold political commitment and track progress to end malaria by 2030 from leaders across all sectors of society, from Heads of States, Government Ministries, international bodies and multilateral institutions to corporate leaders, academia, civil society, thought leaders and influencers.

APLMA draws on its mandate from the East Asia Summit leaders to build health diplomacy across borders and sectors, strengthening and maintaining collaboration infrastructure towards a malaria-free Asia-Pacific by 2030.
