Briefing With African Ministers Discusses Malaria Control

In his blog, “Malaria Matters,” Bill Brieger, a professor in the Health Systems Program of the Department of International Health at Johns Hopkins University as well as the senior malaria adviser for JHPIEGO, describes a briefing (.pdf) that “was given to African ministers of health and foreign affairs on July 13, 2013, in Abuja, Nigeria to review progress in Africa’s fight against malaria and to announce a new initiative to support 10 high-burden countries as part of the Special African Union Summit on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.” He summarizes the comments of several attendees and describes the Malaria Situation Room, “a way to collate data on funding, intervention, commodities and results” (7/15).
