President Uhuru Kenyatta today said Africa had made significant progress in the war against malaria in the last two years, and attributed the success to a four-point program implemented by the African Leaders Malaria Alliance (ALMA).
“When I assumed the chair of ALMA I came up with a four-point legacy agenda and the four key initiatives included digitization and scorecard accountability and action plans, multi-sectoral advocacy, action and resource mobilization, regional coordination and access to life-saving commodities,” the President said.

The Kenyan Head of State spoke in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where he presented last year’s ALMA Malaria Progress Report at the ongoing 35th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union.
President Kenyatta, who decried the sustained high malaria prevalence on the continent, isolated digitization, and accountability and action scorecards, one of his four-point agenda against malaria as an important tool in the campaign against the disease.
He said it was progressive to see African countries embrace the use of digital tools to strengthen evidence-based accountability and action in the fight against malaria.
