Indeed, in spite of the EU’s political will to achieve the MDGs and the highest level of global funding to date, the funding gap for malaria persists - $1 billion per year is available today whereas $3 billion a year is needed to control malaria by 2015. In addition, although tools and strategies which work well to control malaria exist, many people, particularly children, are still not being reached by delivery systems.<br/><br/><a href='http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=51'>Read more</a> Jun 16th, 2008 http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=51 News release: World Malaria Day 2008 in the UK - NGOS, BUSINESSES AND TRADE UNIONS UNITE AGAINST MALARIA http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=47LONDON, 25 APRIL 2008: On the first World Malaria Day, Malaria Consortium, International Business Leaders' Forum, Nigerian Organisation of Women and Trades Union Congress are calling for the mobilisation and commitments for action by all UK civil society stakeholders in the response to malaria.<br/><br/><a href='http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=47'>Read more</a> Apr 25th, 2008 http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=47 Malaria Consortium World Malaria Day Statement http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=46London, Friday 25 April 2008.

UNITAID, in collaboration with partners UNICEF and WHO, supplied rescue packages of effective malaria treatments - artemisinin based combination therapies (ACTs) - for Liberia and Burundi, when they ran out of medicines and funding late last year.<br/><br/><a href='http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=17'>Read more</a> Sep 20th, 2007 http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=17 NGOs come together to make healthcare for all a reality: now is the time for European donors to put their money where their mouths are. http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=18Non-governmental organisations met recently at the Financing and Action for Global Health Conference in London and called on European donors to improve their development policy and make more money available to achieve the health Millennium Development Goals. <br/><br/><a href='http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=18'>Read more</a> Sep 14th, 2007 http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=18 Laura Bush in Mozambique http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=14Laura Bush's visit to Mozambique<br/><br/><a href='http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=14'>Read more</a> Aug 9th, 2007 http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=14 BBC Radio 4 and Drug resistance http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=13Dr Sylvia Meek, MC's Technical Director spoke on drug resistance on BBC Radio 4's science series which aired on Tuesday 3rd July (1st part) and Tuesday 10th July (2nd part) at 9.00 pm. <br/><br/><a href='http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=13'>Read more</a> Jul 10th, 2007 http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=13 News release: Evidence shows tackling malaria will help achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=125 July 2007, BRUSSELS: As the international community marks the mid-way point between the adoption of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the 2015 target date, the European Alliance Against Malaria urges strengthened efforts to tackle malaria as part of getting poverty reduction efforts on track to meet the agreed targets. <br/><br/><a href='http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=12'>Read more</a> Jul 5th, 2007 http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=12 News release: Malaria Consortium Announces New Innovation Grants for Malaria Advocacy in Africa http://www.malariaconsortium.org/~malaqkmt/news.php?id=11London, 9/05/07.
