RBM Country/Regional Support Partner Committee (CRSPC) update

Dr. Peter Olumese, WHO, and Melanie Renshaw, ALMA

In their presentation, Melanie and Peter reminded participants of the purpose of CRSPC, which is to provide a platform to engage the RBM Partnership community in coordinating support to countries and regions as they execute their malaria control and elimination programs. They underscored that support is based on country demand and is tailored to suit the requirements, existing capacity, and partner support, and CRSPC operates a triage mechanism to ensure that support does not compete with or duplicate existing mechanisms that are working effectively. Typically, consultants are sourced from within the region where they are working. They outlined the roles and responsibilities of CRSPC and pointed that COVID-19 continues to disrupt malaria control programs, and commodity delivery times continue to be at least two months longer than before COVID-19. Priority activities for 2022 include technical strategies and implementation plans, implementation support, and resource mobilization. They concluded the presentation with a summary of the priority areas for CRSPC in 2022
