GSK offers its antimalarials at not-for-profit prices to public sector customers and not-for-profit organizations in low income countries. All Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCM) projects fully funded by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS TB and Malaria are also eligible.
By embedding the project and malaria focus in to the local governance structures, the projects take steps towards improving local capacity to manage health systems for the prevention and control of malaria. It is important that Community Health Workers (CHWs) are well linked with village governments. To strengthen these linkages, partners conduct workshops in village to engage village leaders. This has resulted in improved support from village government. Additionally, the projects often work with local implementing partners to ensure stronger, more sustainable work with the communities.
The GSK Africa Malaria Partnership currently supports partnerships with non-governmental organisations to build the capacity of CHWs and encourage behaviour change. With a total commitment of £1.5 million over three years our current projects include:
