African Leaders Malaria Alliance (ALMA)
The African Leaders Malaria Alliance is a groundbreaking coalition of 49 African Heads of State and Government working across country and regional borders to achieve near-zero malaria deaths in Africa by 2015. They are leveraging their collective knowledge and influence to bring about action and accountability as we fight one of the continent’s most devastating diseases by:
Providing a forum to review progress and address challenges in meeting the malaria targets;
Implementing a monitoring and accountability system through the ALMA Scorecard for Accountability and Action to track results, identify bottlenecks, and facilitate appropriate action; and
Identifying and sharing lessons learned for effective implemaentation of national programs
Never before have African leaders come together in this way to solve a crisis assailing the entire continent. Their collaborative strategy has proven itself to be an effective model for sustainable change as we continue to engage new stakeholders, deepen relationships with key decision makers, and work with ministers, NGOs, the private sector, and other partners to maximize the value and impact of our work.
All members of ALMA are committed to reaching the United Nations Secretary-General’s goal of ensuring universal access to malaria control interventions by the end of 2010, with the goal of ending preventable malaria deaths by 2015.See more
