Invitation: Public-Private Partnerships in Malaria Control

May 27, 2011

The UN Department of Public Information has announced a panel on public-private partnerships in Malaria Control, presented by the Roll Back Malaria Partnership, which might be of interest to some members of our Division and area.  If you choose to attend, please consider writing an entry about the event for this Blog and send it to unasouthernny@gmail.com

DATE:  Friday, June 3

TIME: 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.     Registration open from 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

PLACE:  United Nations, North Lawn Building, Conference Room 6

This panel discussion will underscore the importance of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) in achieving goals in the fight against malaria, while showcasing key successes that demonstrate why PPPs are in the interest of all actors involved in the work of malaria control.   Featured examples will include the World Bank collaboration with the Exxon Mobil Foundation to support countries under the Booster Program for Malaria Control, and Anglo Gold Ashanti’s integrated malaria control partnership in Obuasi, Ghana that paved the way for the company to coordinate national scale-up as the first private company to perform the lead role for a Global Fund grant in Africa.  The discussion will also highlight the newest report in the Roll Back Malaria Partnership Progress and Impact Series—Business Investing in Malaria Control: Economic Returns and a Healthy Workforce for Africa, particularly the improvement in productivity for companies introducing malaria control programs.

Entry Information for those without a UN pass: Enter at the Visitors’ Entrance on 1st Avenue and 46th Street.  You will need a photo ID.

Make your way through the security tent, leading to the registration table in the Visitors’ Lobby where you will receive an event pass.
