Zero Malaria! Civil society is engaged

PRESS RELEASE
Zero Malaria! Civil society is engaged
Launch of the first global network of Civil Society Organizations for Malaria
Elimination on April 25, 2019
Uniting civil society organizations and communities to achieve malaria elimination
#AccelerateTheMovement

On April 25, 2019, the official ceremony of the World Malaria Day will be held in Paris (France),
jointly organized by RBM- Partnership to end malaria, WHO and the French Government. This date
will be marked by the official launch of the Global Civil Society Network for Malaria Elimination

(CS4ME).

CS4ME was created at the first World Malaria Congress in July 2018 in Australia, during a strategic
workshop organized by GFAN Asia-Pacific and APCASO with the support of the Global Fund to fight
AIDS TB and Malaria and the Congress organizers. The meeting was attended by 40 organizations
from around the world including representatives of communities and civil society engaged in the
fight against malaria at national, regional and global levels.

“At a time when the world has the resources and tools to prevent and treat malaria, it is unacceptable
that it is mainly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged communities that continue to suffer and die
from this preventable and curable disease. This is why civil society and communities have decided to
join forces and work in synergy with various stakeholders in a more effective way to eliminate
malaria” says Ms. Ngou Olivia, Global Coordinator of CS4ME. On World Malaria Day the network
will be officially launched, and organizations will be asked to register.

Civil society organizations play a key role in the road to achieve malaria elimination, particularly in
the Thailand and the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), where we aim to eliminate malaria by 2024
and 2030 respectively.

In Thailand, Raks Thai Foundation (CARE Thailand), in partnership with other civil society
organizations working under the National Malaria Elimination Strategy (2017-2026), lead advocacy
actions towards local leaders and strong community initiatives such as building resilient
communities through health education, community testing, vector control and cross-border
collaboration

We welcome and encourage these efforts.

About CS4ME

CS4ME’s goal is to connect civil society organizations and malaria control communities on a single
platform. We promote and advocate for malaria control programs and interventions to be more
effective, sustainable, equitable, innovative, inclusive of civil society, community-based, human
rights and gender-based and adequately funded. To become a member of CS4ME, for civil society
organization’s working in the fight against malaria, register from April 26, 2019 on our website.
