The African Leaders Malaria Alliance (ALMA) is a group of African Heads of State committed to fighting malaria, promoting accountability and transparency among the malaria programs of African governments and providing a forum to share best practices.
The Asia-Pacific Leaders Malaria Alliance (APLMA) brings leaders together to address regional malaria challenges, including regional financing mechanisms and access to quality medicines and other technologies.
Country responses to malaria in the Americas are coordinated with regional strategies - including the Amazon Malaria Initiative - with the support of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
