SADC Malaria Elimination Eight Initiative: ANNUAL REPORT 2019 |

Publisher:  SADC 


“2019 marked 10 years since the historic declaration in 2009 by Eight (8) Ministers of Health to establish the Malaria Elimination 8 regional initiative under the auspice of the Southern Africa
Development Community (SADC). The mandate was clear; to draw down cases and deaths caused by malaria to zero in each member state, while addressing cross border transmission across
shared borders. This strategy was most important, requiring synchronization of interventions between common borders, and consistent dialogue between neighbouring countries, to ensure policies are in place to achieve elimination.”
