- Ninth Vector Control Working Group meeting
3 March 2014: - We are proud to announce Roll Back Malaria as a new Partner of the Fight the Fakes campaign! Fake medicines are a threat to public health and put patients at risk of drug resistance, prolonged illness, disability and even death. Their negative impacts can undermine entire public health initiatives and patient trust in healthcare systems and providers. A comprehensive strategy to combat fake medicines requires multi-stakeholder collaboration at local and global levels.

24 February 2014, Geneva, SWITZERLAND : - More than 50 organizations meet at the Global Fund Secretariat in Geneva today to shape the future course of RBM's in-country advocacy. Changes in the development landscape and resource mobilization discussions place countries and regional institutions centre-stage. Partners will address one persistent challenge in mobilizing domestic resources for malaria at the country level, which is a lack of national-level advocates who can consistently work on the ground in endemic countries to build networks and reach out to decision makers.
