RBM Partnership to End Malaria

The RBM Partnership to End Malaria is the global platform for coordinated action against malaria. It mobilizes for action and resources and forges consensus among partners. The Partnership is comprised of more than 500 partners committed to end malaria, including malaria endemic countries, their bilateral and multilateral development partners, the private sector, nongovernmental and community-based organizations, foundations, and research and academic institution.

The RBM partnership's strength lies in its ability to form effective partnerships both globally, regionally and nationally. Partners work together to scale up malaria-control and elimination efforts at country level, coordinating their activities to avoid duplication and fragmentation, and to ensure optimal use of resources. The partnership’s overall strategy aims to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality by reaching universal coverage of at risk populations and strengthening health systems.

The RBM Partnership is seeking a Deputy CEO to support the CEO in managing the RBM Partnership Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland, and representing the Partnership at the global level.

The RBM Partnership Secretariat is hosted by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) in Geneva, Switzerland.
