On January 23, 2017, in Phnom Penh, representatives from communities most effected by malaria, civil society organizations working in the malaria response gathered in a consultation workshop to prepare inputs to the Global Fund RAI concept note 2018-2020. The workshop was organized by partners for Development with Malaria Consortium and with technical and financial support from GMS Malaria Civil Society Platform and APCASO.
Leadership from the National Center from Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control (CNM), particularly Dr. Siv, members of the RAI Regional Steering Committee, the CCC and UNOPS guided the meeting. Participants appreciated the Cambodian government’s elimination commitment (Plasmodium falciparum malaria by 2020 and Plasmodium vivax malaria by 2025) and the Malaria Elimination Action Framework (MEAF) 2016-2020 and were impressed by the achievements of the National Malaria Program under the current RAI grant. Community and civil society look forward to continuing to work with the National Progamme in implementing the elimination agenda and building on the successes achieved during RAI-1.
