"The global campaign against malaria has shown what is possible when the international community joins forces on multiple fronts to tackle a disease that takes its heaviest toll on poor and underprivileged populations… The advances of recent years show that the battle against malaria can be won."
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
"I speak on behalf of the 44 ALMA Heads of State and Government. As the world begins discussions on the post-2015 development framework, African leaders understand that we have a three-year window to leverage every resource to ensure that we achieve the health goals for our people and to develop plans to sustain the gains".
Raymond G Chambers
"With malaria deaths in Africa having fallen significantly since 2000, the return on our investment to end malaria deaths has been greater than any I have experienced in the business world. But one child still dies every minute from malaria - and that is one child and one minute too many.”
Dr Margaret Chan
"If we take full advantage of the malaria prevention and control tools we have today, while mitigating potential threats through constant vigilance and timely response, then we will sustain and extend the remarkable gains that have been made. The citizens of malaria-endemic countries are all counting on us. We must not let them down."
Dr Mark Dybul
"We have made tremendous progress in the past ten years, and we can't stop now…We are at a critical moment. Our gains will be lost if we do not move forward to defeat these diseases. We have a historic opportunity to completely control these diseases. We need to seize the moment".
"The RBM Partnership is committed to helping mobilise the resources needed in endemic countries to maintain high levels of coverage with life-saving malaria prevention and treatment. We are looking for fresh ideas and new thinking about financing mechanisms that will reap greater resources for malaria. We are exploring all options - financial transaction taxes, airline ticket taxes together with UNITAID, and a “malaria bond,” among others.”
HRH Princess Astrid
"Investments in malaria prevention and control have been among the best investments in global health, resulting in a dramatic decrease in malaria deaths and illness. If adequate financial resources are secured, we could further expand our efforts and continue saving lives. With malaria, we know that the return is high and the cost is low. The simple, proven tools we have to prevent and treat malaria account for some of the most cost-effective health interventions of our time, and they have the potential to lift entire generations around the globe out of poverty."
"The damage this disease [malaria] does is quite incredible… The parasite has been killing children and sapping the strength of whole populations for tens of thousands of years…Now we can chart a course to end it".
Yvonne Chaka Chaka
"I’m calling on the private sector to be more active in the fight against malaria. This issue is important to everyone who lives and works on the African continent, so we need to see every company involved.”
