PMI Launches New Strategy For 2015-2020

U.S. Department of State’s “DipNote”: A World Without Malaria: New President’s Malaria Initiative Strategy Launched
Deborah L. Birx, U.S. global AIDS coordinator and U.S. special representative for global health diplomacy, and Tim Ziemer, U.S. global malaria coordinator, discuss the progress of the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), as well as the launch of the updated strategy which will guide the initiative through 2020. The initiative will work to accomplish three objectives: “[r]educe malaria mortality by one-third from 2015 levels in PMI-supported countries … [r]educe malaria morbidity in PMI-supported countries by 40 percent from 2015 levels … and [a]ssist at least five PMI-supported countries to meet the WHO criteria for national or sub-national pre-elimination” (3/20).
