Malaria efforts in Africa are at the crossroads. 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. Held in conjunction with the African Union Summit, the high-level briefing seeks to create a watershed moment in global, regional and national efforts to end malaria on the African continent. It will explore a renewed and strengthened commitment to malaria elimination among African Union member States in 2018.
