But sustained political will is also essential to this fight. Something the Right Hon Stephen O’ Brien, British MP knows all too well.
He was announced at the board meeting as a newly appointed Global Advocate for the Roll Back Malaria Partnership. He brings a wealth of experience having relentlessly championed the issue of malaria in the UK parliament, including creating a cross-party platform for action in the All Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical diseases. In his new role as global advocate, he will be charged with keeping malaria high on the agenda of politicians around the world.
