The Roll Back Malaria (RBM) programme – launched in 1998 by Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland shortly after taking over as WHO Director-General – appointed Dr. Fatoumata Nafo-Traoré, a former Minister of Health of Mali, as its first Executive Secretary.WHO said Dr. Nafo-Traoré’s extensive experience with the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and coalitions such as the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) ensures a greater focus on country-level support in the plans and activities of the RMB Partnership Board. For the first time partners are developing joint work-plans and creating combined country support teams to intensify action.In a further sign that the Partnership is reinvigorating its efforts, the RBM Secretariat is identifying new sources of finance and methods to increase efficient use of available funds earmarked for malaria control at the country level. The Secretariat is also establishing systems that will enable more effective monitoring of the activities and impact of the Partnership.According to WHO, malaria causes at least 3,000 deaths a day, over 90 per cent of which are in Africa south of the Sahara and most of which are in young children. Malaria, a major cause of poverty, slows economic growth by as much as 1.3 per cent per year in endemic countries.
