WMD_2014

World Malaria Day is commemorated every year on April 25 and is an opportunity for the global development and health communities to intensify their efforts in providing access to affordable, safe and effective anti-malarial combination treatments worldwide, as well as protective insecticide treated nets and other preventive measures.


The Roll Back Malaria Partnership (RBM) is the global framework for coordinated action against malaria. It forges consensus among key actors in malaria control, harmonises action and mobilises resources to fight malaria in endemic countries.


In order to gain a better understanding of the Roll Back Malaria partnership, the Geneva Y's Men's Club in Switzerland invited representatives from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to their monthly lunch meeting.


In September 2009 and December 2010, funds raised by Y's Men International suported the mass distribution of long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) in Sierra Leone.
