16 September 2014, Addis Ababa, ETHIOPIA : - United Against Malaria(UAM), a campaign of the Roll Back Malaria (RBM) Partnership, commends the Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF) for its ongoing commitment to malaria control in Africa. Today, as part of the agenda of its annual meetings held at the African Union headquarters from the 12 to the 20th of September, CAF renewed its commitment to the four social causes for 2015 OrangeTM Africa Cup of Nations tournament, including the UAM campaign. This pledge builds on CAF's designation of UAM as an official social cause of the 2013 AFCON tournament, which resulted in an estimated 1 billion people reached with life-saving messages about prevention and treatment of malaria.

11 September 2014, New York, USA : - - In the last days of the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly, UN Member States adopted Resolution A/68/L.60, "Consolidating Gains and Accelerating Efforts to Control and Eliminate Malaria in Developing Countries, Particularly in Africa, by 2015". Recognizing progress made through political leadership and a broad range of national and international actions to scale-up malaria control interventions, this annual resolution urges governments — together with United Nations agencies, private organizations and foundations — to work together to overcome challenges and accelerate efforts toward the targets set out in Roll Back Malaria Partnership's Global Malaria Action Plan (GMAP) and the UN's Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The resolution calls for donor and endemic governments alike to support global malaria control efforts, including through the secretariat of the Roll Back Malaria Partnership, and to intensify efforts to secure the political commitment, partnerships and funds needed to continue saving lives. Increased financing will be critical to further advancements, as current international and domestic financing for malaria of US $2.5 billion in 2012 amounts to less than half of the US $5.1 billion which RBM estimates is needed annually through 2020 to achieve universal coverage of malaria control interventions.
