October 25-26, 2017
Lusaka, Zambia was the venue for our Country Partner Engagement Meeting where representatives from the 14 partner countries, project partners, Unitaid, stakeholders and the External Advisory Committee(EAC) members were invited to participate. The meeting was hosted by the National Malaria Elimination Centre.
Meeting face to face and sharing project progress, success stories and lessons learned created a platform for cross-pollination of ideas and many valuable discussions around benefits and challenges of the partnership. Building sustainable markets for 3GIRS products within effective resistance management strategies was a topic of interest with the PQ listing of a second 3GIRS product anticipated in late October. It was also an opportunity to discuss and share progress on building the evidence base showing cost-effectiveness and impact of 3GIRS. Feedback received indicated that the event was of great value and generated linkages between partners, to continue to exchange ideas and support each other.
