Adopted by the World Health Assembly
The WHO Global Technical Strategy for Malaria 2016–2030 was adopted by the World Health Assembly in May 2015.
The document was developed through an inclusive process under the guidance of a Steering Committee composed of leading malaria technical experts, scientists and country representatives. Oversight was provided by the Malaria Policy Advisory Committee.
During the strategy development process, WHO consulted all affected countries through a series of 7 regional consultations. In July–August 2014, WHO held a public web consultation, during which members of the global health community, including nongovernmental organizations in official relations with WHO, had an opportunity to comment on the draft.
The document was developed in close alignment with the Roll Back Malaria Partnership’s Action and Investment to defeat Malaria 2016–2030 – for a malaria-free world to ensure shared goals and complementarity. WHO is now working on developing regional implementation plans to roll out the technical strategy.
