Taking place on Thursday 23 June on the side-lines of the 26th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Rwanda, the Kigali Summit on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) will convene endemic and donor country leaders, including presidents, community and business leaders, and philanthropists, to galvanize action to end these diseases.
Hosted by His Excellency President Paul Kagame of Rwanda and co-convened by The RBM Partnership to End Malaria and Uniting to Combat NTDs, the Summit will be a landmark moment to renew high-level commitments to end malaria and NTDs and unlock the potential for countries to build a safer world.
The Summit will also be a critical moment to highlight how investments in fighting these diseases have a much broader impact. Platforms built by malaria and NTD programmes have been at the forefront of the COVID-19 response. Increased investments against these diseases will advance equity by further strengthening health systems and helping protect against future pandemics.
The in-person event is invitation only. Live-stream will be available during the event.
