Financing Malaria Strategic Plans in Africa in 2018-2020
According to the World Malaria Report, released by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2017, just 15 countries carried the heaviest malaria burden in 2016, together accounting for 80% of all global malaria cases and deaths. All but one were in Africa. While some countries have seen a greater than 20% increase in malaria cases and deaths since 2016, others are showing that beating malaria is possible. The report sends a clear warning that progress could be in jeopardy and that malaria resurgence is on the rise.
The Country and Regional Support Partner Committee (CRSPC) of the RBM Partnership to End Malaria has supported the roll out of the updated programmatic and financial gap analyses as part of the broader support to countries in the development of their Global Fund malaria applications for the period 2018-2020. This moving summary includes the data from 35 countries that have finalised their grant making process, and additional updates will be provided as more final gap analyses become available.
