The African Leaders Malaria Alliance (ALMA) is a coalition of 49 Heads of State and Government established to drive accountability and action for results against malaria, NTDs, RMNCAH and nutrition. ALMA’s vision is aligned with both the African Union Agenda 2063 – “The Africa We Want” which sets the eradication of malaria as a key goal; and the AU catalytic framework to end AIDS, TB and eliminate malaria by 2030.
ALMA works to enhance accountability for results in the fight against malaria focusing on the use of the scorecard accountability and action tracking mechanism at continental, regional, national, sub-national and community levels. ALMA also works to sustain political and leadership commitments, and supports countries to track progress, identify bottlenecks and take action. ALMA also supports countries in the establishment of End Malaria Councils and Funds.
Responding to malaria
We are leveraging our collective knowledge and influence to bring about action and accountability as we fight one of our continent’s most devastating diseases by:
- Providing a forum to review progress and address challenges in meeting the malaria and SDG target;
- Implementing a monitoring and accountability system through the Scorecard Management tools, tracking results, identifying bottlenecks, and facilitating appropriate action; and
- Supporting countries in the establishment of End Malaria Councils and Funds to enhance domestic resource mobilisation including from the private sector and enhancing multi-sectoral engagement
- Identifying and sharing lessons learned for effective implementation of national programs
