A New Era for Roll Back Malaria Partnership
In June 2016, the new Roll Back Malaria (RBM) Partnership Board was named to lead the global organization into a new era, accelerate efforts and drive momentum to end malaria for good.
This Board comprises an incredibly experienced group of individuals from across the malaria and development community.
Governance and Policies
The RBM Partnership aligns and supports affected countries, donors and other partner organizations to achieve internationally agreed targets for malaria control and elimination, map resource requirements and gaps, and lead in the mobilization of resources. The Partnership is composed of a multitude of Partners, including malaria-affected countries, their bilateral and multilateral development partners, the private sector, nongovernmental and community-based organisations, philanthropic foundations, and research & academic institutions. The Partners join the Partnership on a voluntary basis through their commitment to the Vision of “a world free of malaria”
Partners are accountable to the Partnership Board and to other Partners and Partnership Mechanisms for the achievement of targets set out in RBM strategies, operational plans, and programmes for which they have accepted accountability. The Partnership Board and other mechanisms may request Partners to report on their progress towards achieving these targets.
The key Partnership mechanisms are:
· The Partnership Board
· A Management Team, led by a Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
· Partner Committees – focused on the three priorities of the Partnership:
o Advocacy and Resource Mobilization
o Strategic Communications
o Country/Regional Support
The Partnership shall have working relationship with other key malaria actors such as WHO, UNICEF, the World Bank, the African Union, ASEAN, Regional Development Banks, and other mechanisms such as ALMA, APLMA, and the End Malaria Council and those who engage in advocacy and mobilize global actors to work towards achieving the Partnership Strategy, leveraging their unique positions across sectors and geographies.
