Arusha, Tanzania

EARN held its 13th General Assembly meeting in Arusha, Tanzania, from 3rd to 7th September 2012, under the theme: “Sustain Gains, Save Lives: Invest in Malaria” and the slogan: “Malaria Control for Sustainable Development in Eastern Africa!” to review the progress of country roadmaps towards full implementation of the Global Malaria Action Plan (GMAP) in East Africa. Delegates to the meeting and the RBM Secretariat addressed issues that included updates on country malaria control roadmaps, management of Artemisinin resistance containment, and management of malaria vector insecticide resistance. The meeting also reviewed the status of community management of malaria and M & E surveillance systems, AMFm transition planning, and the need to strengthen in-country and crossborder malaria partnerships as a way to improve the use of an already dwindling resource through the creation of synergistic partnerships within countries and in the sub-region.
