We could not be prouder of the work you accomplished at Summit! Because of your hard work and dedication, we engaged more than 160 Congressional Offices from 41 states to advocate for strong bipartisan leadership and robust funding for the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative; the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria; Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; UNICEF; and CDC.

The enthusiasm, passion and sense of community in the room was palpable! We were joined by professors, researchers and students from more than 20 universities from Alabama to Nevada; members of the African diaspora including leaders from the Association of Nigerian Physicians in the Americas (ANPA); representatives from civil society partners such as Junior Chamber International USA and Rotarians Against Malaria-Global/Malaria Partners International as well as private sector partners like BASF, Cotopaxi, Novartis, SC Johnson, Valent BioSciences and Vestergaard.

We know the fight to #BeatMalaria is going to take all of us staying engaged throughout the year! Your passion and enthusiasm is critical in maintaining momentum. So, pat yourselves on the back, and gear up for the next phase of our advocacy this year — because the work continues! Keep reading for an overview of key advocacy moments in 2024!
