Sahel Malaria Elimination Initiative (SaME) High-Level Ministerial Meeting

31 - 08 - 2018
Dakar, Senegal

This high-profile working lunch will be held on the sidelines of the 67th Session of the WHO Regional Committee for Africa. Building on the fruitful dialogue and political will expressed during the previous meetings in Dakar and Geneva, this event will consolidate a series of decisions looking to advance the initiative and catalyse the implementation process. Eight Sahel countries - Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal and The Gambia - have engaged in this regional multi-country cooperation platform and are constantly reiterating their commitment. A number of international partners, sharing this vision of a malaria-free world, have joined the effort.
