Elimination 8

The Southern African Malaria Elimination Initiative 8 (E8) is a coordinated effort by eight countries to meet the historic goal of eliminating Malaria in 8 southern African countries by 2030 (Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Swaziland, Angola, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe). Activities are carried out in shared border regions.

 

Through a phase-out strategy, the advance of Malaria transmission is gradually reduced until the region is eventually free of malaria. This regionally coordinated approach is key to achieving successful Malaria elimination.
