You’re Invited: National Malaria Control Programs Journey to Self-Reliance

You’re Invited: National Malaria Control Programs Journey to Self-Reliance

USAID and the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative second long-term technical advisors (LTTAs) to support countries to utilize Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) investments to achieve the goals and objectives of national disease programs. LTTAs help ensure Global Fund Malaria grants are optimally performing and that countries have the assistance needed to develop further requests for funding for malaria from the Global Fund. Every year, implementing partners supporting these advisors – the HRH2030 Capacity Building for Malaria (CBM) activity and USAID’s flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) – host semi-annual meetings to gather these malaria technical advisors and their National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) counterparts to discuss progress of malaria prevention and treatment activities in-country, share best practices and knowledge, and participate in leadership activities.

Join us: Thursday, December 6, 2018 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. EDT

HRH2030 and MCSP invite you to hear “Voices from the Field” talk through their experiences in the fight against malaria. NMCP leadership anticipated to be joining us – from Burundi, Chad, Cote d’Ivoire, The Gambia, Guinea, Nepal, Niger, Sierra Leone, and Togo – will discuss their work in-country to improve malaria control. We will then have a panel discussion with the NMCP representatives focused on the NMCPs’ journeys to self-reliance, moderated by the advisors working with them.

Presenters:

  • Opening Remarks and Introduction: USAID, HRH2030, and MCSP Leadership
  • Country Snapshots & Panel Discussion: Representatives from NMCPs
  • Closing Remarks: Wanda Jaskiewicz, HRH2030 Project Director | Chemonics International
