The Ecobank Foundation is committed to helping eradicate malaria across Africa and applauds the work of the Zero Malaria Business Leadership Initiative.
July 2022 marked the second anniversary of the Zero Malaria Business Leadership Initiative (ZMBLI). In partnership with the UN-hosted RBM Partnership to End Malaria and the Senegal-based policy and advocacy action tank Speak Up Africa, ZMBLI seeks to drive private sector engagement in the fight against malaria in Africa.
It supports the ‘Zero Malaria Starts with Me’ movement which was endorsed by African Union leaders in 2018. The collaboration supports communities at risk of malaria across the continent by advocating for stronger political will, increased funding and more targeted malaria elimination responses.
At the same time, Africa Day marked the fourth anniversary of the ‘Zero Malaria Starts with Me’ movement, with 25 countries now part of the grassroots-led campaign to accelerate action on the continent to end malaria.
