WHO’s Global Malaria Programme Launches New Strategy

Ahead of World Malaria Day, the WHO Global Malaria Programme published a new operational strategy outlining its priorities and key activities up to 2030 to help change the trajectory of malaria trends, with a view to achieving the global malaria targets. The strategy outlines 4 strategic objectives where WHO will focus its efforts, including developing norms and standards, introducing new tools and innovation, promoting strategic information for impact, and providing technical leadership of the global malaria response.

As WHO’s technical department for malaria, the Global Malaria Programme has an important role to play in leading the global response against this disease. Through its direct actions and network, it has the potential to shape the malaria ecosystem and achieve impact at country level. With this in mind, the Global Malaria Programme has developed an operational strategy outlining its priorities for the period 2024‒2030 and the 4 strategic levers to control and eliminate malaria that are decisively within the Programme’s mandate: norms and standards, new tools and innovation, strategic information for impact, and leadership. The strategy describes how the Global Malaria Programme will also transform by collaborating more effectively with other programmes, regional and country offices and partners, guided by lessons learned from WHO’s Thirteenth General Programme of Work (GPW13) and the GPW14 priorities.
