The RBM Partnership recognises that agencies in today’s world accomplish more by working collectively instead of in isolation; thus it prioritises areas where it has a unique added value by leveraging its more than 500 Partners including malaria endemic countries, their bilateral and multilateral development partners, the private sector, non-governmental and communitybased organisations, foundations, research and academic institutions.
As the largest global multi-stakeholder platform to fight malaria, the Partnership is best suited to work across sectors and regions, both nationally and globally, in the spirit of “achieving more, together”, avoiding duplication and fragmentation and ensuring optimal use of resources. Its main role is to align and support malaria-affected countries, donors and Partners towards achieving agreed malaria control and elimination targets.
The core functions of the Partnership are:
1) convene partners focused on this common cause;
2) coordinate partners to maximise alignment, facilitate cooperation and ensure that common challenges are addressed cooperatively;
3) mobilise resources by identifying resource requirements and creating humanitarian and business cases to support the mobilisation of resources;
4) facilitate communication, identify and address opportunities and challenges by engaging Partners, sharing experience and best practice; and
5) provide mission-critical support to malaria affected countries and regions, supporting the critical enablers required to enhance political will and providing targeted support where it is needed most.
