Malaria Success Stories

The RBM Interactive Newspaper:
The RBM interactive newspaper is published four times a year by WHO's RBM Initiative.The newspaper features articles highlighting ideas, successes and challenges of those involved in malaria control. By emphasising the elements of the RBM strategy, the newspaper also helps increase awareness and understanding of the strategy as a whole.

Anyone with a story, no matter how small, that illustrates the many ways in which RBM movement is progressing towards its goals is invited to submit their story. (Corresponents are encouraged to use the RBM Reporter Form described below.) We are looking for articles, editorials, and letters to the editor that feature your country's activities in malaria control, as well as examples of the successes and innovations you have discovered in your community. By sharing your experiences and useful ideas readers will be able to utilise innovations and avoid pitfalls that have already been encountered, thus leading to more effective malaria control programmes.

Article preparation:
We encourage you to use the RBM Reporter Form which saves time and guarantees that the information we need is included in your story. The Reporter form is a pdf file (read only) that you may print, fill out, and send in.

In addition, if you would like to submit an article: Use a conversational rather than academic tone. Strive to tell the story from the human/personal perspective, noting specifically how a family, a community or a country has been impacted. Submit 500-800 words. Include action photographs of people and communities involved in malaria control. Include brief biographical information about yourself and how we can reach you.
