The Roll Back Malaria (RBM) partnership is 10 years old this month. What started out in 1998 as an alliance of four UN agencies, to facilitate and coordinate implementation of malaria control, has grown exponentially to become a coalition of more than 500 partners. In the early years, RBM faced several problems: uncertainty around its role, four leadership changes in 5 years, and a catalogue of missed opportunities and failures to make any substantial headway to tackle malaria. But last week, the partnership launched their Global Malaria Action Plan to a huge fanfare at the high-level UN Millennium Development Goal meeting in New York.
