9th CMWG meeting
Case Management Working Group Back on Track
After a four-year hiatus, the Case Management Working Group (CMWG) has been revived with the generous financial support from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). Its 9th annual meeting took place on 29-30 August 2017 in Basel (S&C Orangerie), with 25 participants from 20 organisations*. The objectives of the meeting were to reconvene the global malaria partners to share experiences and evidence on best practices for improving malaria case management, review the terms of reference for the CMWG and its role in the revitalised RBM Partnership, and decide on future CMWG leadership and organisational structure. CMWG developed its workplan under the three newly established workstreams (i) access to quality case management, (ii) improving the quality of case management, (iii) right approach, right time.
