The conference is organised by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Roll Back Malaria Initiative on behalf of the Norwegian Red Cross and International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

The  conference will focus on “Getting to zero” – INNOVATION THROUGH PARTNERSHIPS TO END MALARIA DEATHS BY 2015. This will only be possible through a significant scale-up of malaria interventions as well as political commitment to provide early access to health service and treatment reaching the whole population.
