The RBM Partnership to End Malaria

The RBM Partnership is a global health initiative created to implement coordinated action against malaria. It mobilizes for action and resources and forges consensus among partners. RBM works mainly through Partner Committees (PCs) which formalize, consolidate and amplify the Partnership priorities of advocacy, resource mobilization, and country/regional support. Each Partner Committee is supported by a Partner Committee Manager employed by the RBM Management Team.  

The Country/Regional Support Partner Committee (CRSPC) provides a platform to engage the RBM Partnership community in coordinating support to countries and regions as they execute their malaria control and elimination implementation programmes. Support is tailored to suit the requirements and existing capacity in each country and region.

Two Sub-Regional Network Coordinators will support a sub-regional approach to ensure that collaboration by stakeholders is effective at the sub-regional level. This approach will be operationalized with sub-regional support to Eastern and southern Africa, as well as to Western and Central Africa, in close collaboration with existing structures and partners.  Each of these two sub-regional units will consist of a Sub-Regional Network Coordinator and a Coordination Officer working under the auspices of the CRSPC, to co-ordinate and facilitate communications and support between National Malaria Control Programmes (NMCPs) and partners within the sub-region.
