Malaria in pregnancy, or MiP, is responsible for approximately 10,000 maternal deaths and 100,000 newborn deaths yearly.

Intermittent preventive treatment, or IPTp, can help to save the lives of both expectant mothers and their unborn children from malaria. In 2022, as part of efforts to increase access to IPTp for pregnant women, the malaria in pregnancy working group of the RBM Partnership to End Malaria therefore initiated the Speed Up Scale Up IPTp campaign.

Along the sidelines of the 78th United Nations General Assembly in New York, this event, hosted by Devex and sponsored and convened by RBM Partnership To End Malaria, will invite African First Ladies to provide leadership to the continuation of the campaign and join as champions the effort to scale up access and uptake of antenatal care services and IPTp in affected countries in Africa.
