CAMA members are front runners in the fight against malaria. Their activities span the full spectrum of public health interventions including the development of product innovations to fight malaria such as bed nets, implementation of vector control measures such as Indoor Residual Spraying in communities, provision of treatment to families and pregnant women and guidance on policy frameworks and investments at institutions such as the Global Fund, RBM and Swiss Tropical Health Institute.
CAMA membership is structured into two levels–Leadership Council and Affiliate Group. Membership dues support Alliance management and nominal activities as agreed within the work plan. Members typically go above and beyond their dues contribution by also supporting specific work streams or activities based on their areas of interest.
While CAMA is focused first and foremost on mobilizing the private sector in the malaria fight, non-profit institutions may contribute to CAMA through membership, technical support on areas as defined by the Alliance and/or activities at a global or in-country level.
