Corporations weigh in on solving the malaria challenge

The Corporate Alliance on Malaria in Africa announces a Member Meeting that will take place on December 3, 2012 from 10 am – 4 pm in Houston, Texas. They have shared their invitation with us to let interested colleagues know how to take part.

The Corporate Alliance on Malaria in Africa (CAMA) is a unique coalition of companies that share a vision to reduce the incidence of malaria by promoting private sector cooperation in sub-Saharan Africa. Founded by Marathon Oil in 2007, CAMA serves as a platform for private sector collaboration with country governments and other major stakeholders in the global response against malaria.

CAMA’s three principal objectives include –

  1. building country-level capacity for effective malaria control and its eventual elimination;
  2. providing a forum to exchange knowledge and current best practices in malaria control; and
  3. facilitating the establishment of effective multi-sector partnerships to increase the scale and impact of malaria control interventions.

GBCHealth is the implementing partner and secretariat of CAMA.A special Member Meeting will be held Monday, December 3, 2012, in Houston, Texas, to discuss the accomplishments of the past year and to develop the CAMA engagement strategy for 2013. As CAMA transitions into a fully integrated GBCHealth flagship initiative, this CAMA member meeting will be open to all current and prospective GBCHealth members interested in contributing to global malaria efforts.

The meeting will cover the importance of social and behavioral change programs for controlling malaria at the country level and provide a great networking opportunity for companies to meet key malaria stakeholders from academia, business and non-profits.
