Malaria Pledges

Leaders of malaria-endemic countries across Africa and the Asia-Pacific have pledged to accelerate malaria elimination through domestic funding and by creating an enabling policy environment for the introduction of new tools to boost innovation and access to medicines. The pledge came as public health experts, scientists and researchers joined the Medicines for Malaria Venture in marking 20 years of innovation in malaria medicines and also looking ahead to the next generation of interventions for what remains one of the world's deadliest diseases.
