Y's Men Roll Back Malaria

Published on

The Roll Back Malaria Partnership (RBM) is the global framework for coordinated action against malaria. It forges consensus among key actors in malaria control, harmonises action and mobilises resources to fight malaria in endemic countries.

In 2008, Y’s Men International partnered with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support the RBM Partnership.
