We are entering a crucial decade in global health. A decade that could define how the world copes with challenges through the coming century. 

With a robust resolve, we can confront new threats and advance life-saving innovations.  

We can find solutions that can protect the world’s most vulnerable people from disease and advance the goal of universal health coverage. 

This year, we are going to be talking about these issues in our new Future Health campaign. Watch the one-minute campaign explainer below.

If we don’t develop timely responses in these areas, we will run the risk of reversing years of progress in global health. Instead, by confronting them and  integrating them into new research and interventions, we can help accelerate the work needed to achieve universal health coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. 

Over the next few months we will publish Malaria Consortium’s opinions on these defining issues of our time – and how governments, NGOs, philanthropists and the international community at large can work together to overcome these challenges.

Case study: Taking innovation from pilot to scale

In 2013, a novel intervention called seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) was endorsed by WHO as a way to drive down deaths from malaria of children under five during the Sahel region’s rainy season.

However, the intervention was not ready to be rolled out to millions of children immediately. So Malaria Consortium piloted the intervention in a small area and, from 2015, began to scale it up rapidly by working with partners across the Sahel.

As of 2020, we’re one of the world’s leading implementers of SMC, reaching around 12 million children across our SMC programme with life-saving antimalarial drugs, underpinned by the generous support of thousands of philanthropists.

Our success in catalysing the roll out of SMC across the Sahel region is the result of focusing on an innovation and, with the support of donors and philanthropists, providing a solution to a major global health problem.

With Future Health, we want to do that all over again with the issues of the coming decade.
