  • The MDGs were good for malaria control, says RBM Executive Director at launch of a new UN report

1 October 2014, Kinshasa, DRC : - Parliamentary Assembly of the fight against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria held its 12th annual meeting to assess progress in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Referring to the plea that Dr Victor Makwenge Kaput, Chairman of the RBM Board made at the previous session in 2013, the parliamentarians decided to include — malaria and tuberculosis, the other two key pandemics on the continent — in their fight. This decision seeks to minimize fragmentation through enhanced collaboration and joint advocacy and resource mobilization for the three diseases.
