Progress Toward Outcome

The expected impact of the TA is to increase strategic investments for malaria control and elimination in Asia Pacific.

The expected outcome of the TA is to support the implementation of an awareness-raising campaign among public and private sector stakeholders.ADB's assistance will strengthen the visibility of ADB's regional malaria initiative and will support APLMA's champions group's objectives. The TA will focus on the following key outputs:

Output 1: APLMA's profile and visibility with key stakeholders is raised. The APLMA secretariat focused on establishing the two task forces and developed the work program of the task forces in the last months. APLMA is now at a critical point were initial results from the task forces should be widely communicated among stakeholders. This includes stakeholders from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. What is important is to increase APLMA's visibility outside the health sector. This output will support the development of awareness-raising informational materials, and the organization of awareness-raising events that bring together key stakeholders from the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors. The output will also support two press tours to Viet Nam and Myanmar to feature national leadership in malaria control and elimination, and showcase Myanmar's progress in involving the private sector in its malaria program.

Output 2: Private and public sector involvement and investment including from emerging donors, foundations and philanthropies catalysed. Activities under this output will support engaging with private sector and philanthropies to establish their interest supporting the objectives of APLMA.
