Vision

Our vision is a world free from the burden of malaria. Our mission is to support malaria-affected countries and galvanise global action across all sectors to end malaria for good.

Since 2000, the world has made unprecedented progress against malaria, saving nearly 7 million lives, and is lauded as one of the greatest public health successes in history. Today, more countries are malaria-free than ever before, and 44 countries report less than 10,000 malaria cases—showing that with determination, prioritization and the right tools, elimination is indeed possible.

However, we are at a critical juncture. Half the world still lives at risk from this preventable, treatable disease, which costs a child’s life every two minutes. And for the first time in over a decade, we are seeing progress stall putting years of investment in jeopardy. If we do not seize the moment now, our hard-won gains against malaria will be lost.

With renewed focus and commitment, we can be the generation to end one of the oldest and deadliest diseases in human history.

To achieve its vision of a malaria-free world, the RBM Partnership works in alignment with WHO’s Global Technical Strategy for Malaria 2016-2030 targets. In addition, RBM’s Action and Investment to defeat Malaria 2016 – 2030 (AIM) positions malaria in the wider development agenda. It illustrates how reducing and eliminating malaria creates healthier, more equitable and prosperous societies, and promotes a broadly inclusive and multisectoral response.

RBM Partners work together to support achievement of the following milestones:
