RBM Partnership to End Malaria Strategy

The next few years will determine whether we win the global fight against one of the world’s oldest and deadliest diseases: malaria. Through its 2021–2025 Strategic Plan, the RBM Partnership to End Malaria will accelerate action across all regions and sectors towards achieving a ‘zero malaria’ world.


The RBM Partnership Strategic Plan 2021-2025 outlines the RBM Partnership to End Malaria’s strategic priorities over the next five years. It considers the current landscape – including recent progress made towards malaria elimination and challenges such as COVID-19 - as well as longer-term milestones, including the existing malaria targets set for 2025 and 2030.

Taking place against the backdrop of the unprecedented global health crisis we are facing now, the Strategic Plan guides the determination of priorities and areas of focus across the Partnership, Partners, and Secretariat – while taking into consideration the impact of COVID-19.

The RBM Partnership to End Malaria Strategic Plan 2021-2025 focuses on convening and coordinating an inclusive, multisectoral response to control, eliminate, and ultimately eradicate malaria.

The five-year plan sets three core Strategic Objectives for the RBM Partnership, supported by tangible Strategic Actions and practical approaches (Strategic Enablers) for the RBM Partnership to follow in order to reach these goals. It takes us another step closer to our vision of a world free from the burden of malaria.

Consultative interviews and discussions have drawn from the perspectives of bilateral and multilateral partners, affected communities, civil society and the private sector, among others. The rich, diverse feedback has helped clarify the landscape of partner activities and contributions to shape and focus objectives, actions and enablers. An open call for input through an online survey has provided additional feedback on priorities, strengths to build upon, and areas for improvement, based on experiences over the current strategic period and perspectives going forward.

This Strategic Plan is structured around three main Strategic Objectives, as follows:

Strategic Objective 1: Optimize the quality and effectiveness of country and regional programming to support countries and regions in the planning, implementation, and monitoring of effective malaria response programmes.

Strategic Objective 2: Maximize levels of financing to meet the resource and coverage demands of the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, population growth, and higher costs of new interventions.

Strategic Objective 3: Facilitate the deployment and scale-up of new products, techniques, or implementation strategies.

The Strategic Plan also outlines the following four strategic enablers to implement the Strategic Objectives above:

Strategic Enabler 1: Data sharing and use

Strategic Enabler 2: Effective partnerships

Strategic Enabler 3: Targeted advocacy and communications

Strategic Enabler 4: Focused Secretariat

The strategy aims to position the RBM Partnership to End Malaria to play a vital role in:

• Facilitating timely access to implementation support to address bottlenecks and gaps

• Supporting countries to strengthen multi-stakeholder partnership coordination at the national and sub-national level

• Leveraging regional alliances and initiatives to ensure cross-border and cross-sectoral coordination and coherence

• Advocating for optimized global resource envelopes from existing donors and new channels of financing

• Supporting countries with mobilizing and prioritizing domestic and other resources for malaria and health

• Promoting and supporting the inclusion of new interventions in the design and delivery of programmes, and

• Fostering peer learning and knowledge exchange to facilitate deployment and scale-up of new products, techniques, or implementation strategies.
