|Celebrating 10 Years of Collaboration: Looking into the Future Together|
On Thursday, September 15, 2011, USAID Amazon Malaria Initiative (AMI), and Amazon Network for the Surveillance of Antimalarial Drug Resistance (RAVREDA) will commemorate 10 years of successes and lessons learned in the prevention and treatment of malaria in the Amazon Basin.
The event’s goal
The event’s goal is to present breakthroughs in the regional fight against malaria and call for a sustainable roadmap to control and eventually eliminate this disease. The participants will reflect on the collaboration between USAID AMI and RAVREDA PAHO over the last decade and its positive impact on malaria control in the Amazon. They will also examine ways to align resources and coordinate investments in malaria control efforts in the Americas.
Invited Speakers include Susan Thollaug, Health Team Leader, LAC Bureau, USAID; Rear Admiral, (U.S. Navy Retired) Timothy Ziemer, US Global Malaria Coordinator, President’s Malaria Initiative; Dr. Mirta Roses, Director, PAHO; and Dr. Ana Carolina Santelli, Director Malaria Control Program, Brazil, among others.
Three initiatives from Colombia, Brazil and the Dominican Republic were recognized on Nov. 6 as the 2013 “Malaria Champions of the Americas” for being model projects that integrate malaria interventions with solutions to other health problems.
This year on Malaria Day in the Americas, November 6th 2013, the Pan American Health Organization will host a forum on “Defeating Malaria in the Americas: Perspectives on Costs, Current Resources, and Essential Investments” and an awards ceremony for the winners of the 2013 Malaria Champions of the Americas contest.
