For over 15 years, the Corporate Alliance on Malaria in Africa (CAMA) - an initiative created & driven by GBCHealth in collaboration with Marathon Oil - has mobilized business action on malaria, recognizing that the assets of the private sector are a valuable resource in the fight to protect employees, communities and consumers.

Today, CAMA member companies - drawn from industries including telecoms, banking, pharmaceutical & consumer - both lead and support innovative malaria prevention, control & treatment activities, collectively deploying millions of dollars to programs that serve the needs of malaria-affected people & communities across Africa.

The fight against malaria continues. Each year, more than 400 000 people die of this preventable and treatable disease. In 2019 alone, the African region had an estimated 215 million cases, accounting for c.94% of cases. An estimated two thirds of deaths are among children under the age of five. And yet, despite this, the funding gap between the amount invested and the resources needed to tackle malaria has continued to widen.

CAMA combats malaria through the power of the private sector.


The next few years will be a period of great opportunity for businesses to contribute to a rapid acceleration of progress in the critical fight against malaria in Africa, heading towards the 2030 global malaria targets. Success will require overcoming underlying systemic challenges and a renewed commitment to controlling the disease. CAMA works with the public and private sectors across the African continent to create impact and save lives.
