Inception Meeting of the Multi-sectoral Working Group

Orangerie, Basel, Switzerland


The MSWG has been established under the umbrella of the RBM Partnership to End Malaria following approval by the RBM Board in April 2018. The MSWG convenes and coordinates RBM Partnership members around a multi-sectorial action in the field of malaria to facilitate learning and share best practices from the field. The MSWG aims to design and promote new intervention mechanisms and malaria-sensitive projects and programmes that span across different sectors, the plans and activities of which affect the environmental and social determinants of malaria and other vector-borne diseases.

The inception meeting brought 23 participants from different sectors together, providing an opportunity to consider vector-borne disease prevention and control through an intersectoral lens.
