Global Malaria and Gender Community of Practice (CoP)

Global Malaria and Gender Community of Practice

CEGENSA manages the Malaria and Gender CoP, a community of individuals and organizations working in the field of malaria and/or gender. The community has a membership includes researchers, policymakers, implementing partners, donors, civil society, and advocates.  CoP members are affiliated with organizations such as Malaria No More-UK, Target Malaria, Medicine for Malaria Venture, USAID, World Vision US, WHO, Global Fund, ALMA, and UNICEF.
The goals of the community are to co-create, catalyze, and develop cohesive, strategic, and measurable approaches that integrate gender into malaria work; identify gender-intentional and gender-transformative opportunities to advance gender equity in the fight against malaria; and create a forum to share information, tools and resources, lessons and best practices related to malaria programming and implementation.

In 2022, the community developed an Advocacy Agenda to advance a gender-transformative approach to the fight against malaria to achieve gains in malaria eradication and gender equality in malaria-endemic countries and around the globe. You may download the agenda here.
