This year (2022), the Malaria Champions (MC) Committee has reviewed the initiative to better respond to current and future challenges, taking into account the new Plan of Action for the Elimination of Malaria 2021-2025. The need to promote greater appropriation by the Ministries of Health and other actors in the countries, as well as greater use of the potential of social networks and a need for more permanent actions, among other aspects have motivated this revision.
In this context, the MC Committee organized two consultation sessions (July 2022) that aimed at developing a strategy that takes into consideration the country participants’ opinions. National malaria stakeholders, former malaria champions, program officers and collaborators at both international and local levels took part on the sessions.
