Sub-Saharan African leaders are working together to reignite the pace of progress in the global malaria fight following the High burden to high impact (HBHI) approach – a country-led response to combat the vector-borne disease catalyzed by WHO and the RBM Partnership.

Countries are currently developing national malaria databases that draw on health systems, surveys, research and climate data to better understand the disease’s patterns and the effects of potential interventions. The database aims to improve the quality of information available and, consequently, help identify the most effective policies and intervention tools to control and reduce the burden of the disease.
