Global Malaria Technical & Training Support Package (GlobMal)

Progetto concluso

SDC contribution to Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute aims to enhance technical support and training for global malaria control by contributing knowledge and experience to strategically important institutions and initiatives, such as Roll Back Malaria and World Health Organization, and guarantee a medium-term investment of Swiss commitment to malaria control beyond the Millennium Development Goals. The contribution to develop a global capacity strengthening plan responds to a need of coordinated action.

Based on reported data, 50 countries are on track to meet the World Health Assembly and Roll Back Malaria (RBM) targets (to reduce malaria case incidence by 75% by 2015), including 9 countries in the African Region. Against the current levelling off of funding, sustaining these gains and continuing to protect the most vulnerable in endemic countries must remain a top global health priority. Switzerland has a comparative advantage in the global fight against malaria. SDC’s contribution to the Malaria Center through GlobMal phase 1 leverages credibility and political impact at the global governance level through interactions with WHO, Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, RBM, and guarantees continued Swiss support to the global malaria control effort.


To reduce the malaria burden through increased Swiss targeted strategic support for global level activities in the field of malaria control.

Gruppi target

Global malaria community through policy dialogue and technical expertise advancements Malaria control managers from malaria endemic countries for capacity building Ultimately, populations worldwide of all malaria endemic countries

Effetti a medio termine
  1. Outcome 1: A well-functioning Vector Control Working Group secretariat, that supports effectively the global malaria vector control effort in all areas related to coordination and strategies.
  2. Outcome 2: A strengthened WHO-Global Malaria Programme that has technical resources available and is better able to carry out its global normative and policy making roles.
  3. Outcome 3: Improved capacity for malaria control in endemic countries, through a broader quality offer in teaching and training in the field of malaria epidemiology and control, as well as other targeted measures.



Risultati fasi precedenti:  

This is the first phase of the credit proposal. Earlier support to Roll Back Malaria Vector Control Working Group (2008-current) has provided positive results with regard to technical inputs and overall management and coordination as well as securing of additional funding. Training courses at international level on malaria control has been successfully carried out by Swiss TPH. GlobMal phase 1 builds on these previous successes and expands its activities.
