The Trans-Border Initiative of Accelerating Fight Against Malaria in Six Countries (Gambia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal and Chad)

The Ministers of Health of the Gambia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal and Chad met May 7, 2013 in Nouakchott, Islamic Republic of Mauritania, in the presence of the Roll Back Malaria (RBM) Partnership's Executive Director and the WHO AFRO deputy Regional Director. The meeting aimed to launch the transborder initiative of accelerating fight against malaria in these six countries.

As a prelude to this day, an expert meeting with six countries National Malaria Control Program managers, partners such as WHO, UNICEF Mauritania, OMVS, the IDB, Prof. Oumar Gaye, Prof Ogobara Doumbo and WARN team took place on the 5 and 6 May to update the malaria control activities and review the success stories of this fight against this scourge in recent years.

This situational analysis has led to the development of an joint action plan for accelerating fight against malaria. This cross-border plan focuses on effective interventions such as Seasonal Malaria Chemoprevention (SMC), Surveilance and support of vulnerable populations, including refugees and displaced persons.

In a "Nouakchott declaration", the six Ministers have committed to implement the joint action plan and mobilize internal and external financial resources to achieve Malaria pre-elimination.
