About Us

The RBM Partnership to End Malaria is the largest multi-stakeholder global platform for coordinated action against malaria. We convene more than 500 partners, advocating for concerted, collaborative action to achieve more, together. Partners include malaria-affected countries, bilateral and multilateral development partners, the private sector, product development partnerships, nongovernmental and community-based organisations, research organisations and academic institutions. The RBM Partnership works to increase political and financial commitment, strengthen
programs in malaria-affected countries and advance research into new tools and innovations to end the disease for good.

This World Malaria Day, we want to bring to bring people together and encourage governments to renew global commitments to accelerate progress towards ending one of humanity’s oldest and deadliest diseases. If we don’t seize the moment now, our hard-won gains against the disease will be lost.

About Malaria

Malaria is a preventable and treatable infectious disease transmitted by mosquitoes that kills more than one million people each year, most of them in sub-Saharan Africa, where malaria is the leading cause of death for children under five. 

Thanks to the mobilisation of resources, political will and community efforts, malaria control and elimination efforts since 2000 have resulted in nearly 7 million lives saved, leading to US$2 trillion in benefits to malaria affected countries. However, more progress is urgently needed. 

Malaria remains both a major cause and a consequence of global poverty and inequity: its burden is greatest in the least developed areas and among the poorest members of society. Half the world still lives at risk from this preventable, treatable disease. Progress has slowed and could be rapidly
reversed if vital support for the malaria fight is not sustained. 

This World Malaria Day, we want to bring to bring people together and encourage governments to renew global commitments to accelerate progress towards ending one of humanity’s oldest and deadliest diseases. If we don’t seize the moment now, our hard-won gains against the disease will be lost.
