The Corporate Alliance on Malaria in Africa (CAMA) is a GBCHealth-led initiative to drive partnerships for malaria control and elimination.
Launched by Marathon Oil in 2006, the Alliance is a unique coalition of companies from various industries, all with business interests in Africa.
CAMA channels the collective force and voice of the private sector to drive impact on malaria in Africa from workplaces to region-wide initiatives.
CAMA is a platform for corporations working in Africa to share best practices, create new partnerships and gain visibility for malaria control efforts across the continent.
CAMA companies both lead and support innovative malaria prevention, control and treatment activities and collectively deploy millions of dollars to programs that serve the needs of malaria-affected people and communities.
CAMA also provides a forum for business to engage with and build relations with malaria-focused government and civil society stakeholders.
CAMA is a membership-based Alliance currently comprised of companies and institutions. Learn how you can join CAMA by downloading the CAMA Participation and Benefits Flyer. Or, contact us to see how your organization can become an official CAMA Partner.
As the whole world marches towards malaria elimination, we should not only pray, but commit resources and other efforts to ensure that we are not left behind…The contribution of the Private Sector is acknowledged and highly valued, but we need to be more coordinated and align with national priorities to fast track progress.“Dr. Nnenna Ezeigwe, Former National Coordinator, NMEP
“CAMA allows us to profile our workplace program before peers and other partners, which we rarely get to do otherwise.“Dr. Richard Ajayi, Company Medical Advisor, Nigerian Breweries Plc
“As a result of the… CAMA Forum in Abuja, we realized that we could do more with Malaria in Pregnancy, so we introduced this intervention into our community programs.”Mr. Sunday Okegbemiro, Coordinator, Corporate Responsibility & National Affairs, Nigeria, Chevron
“There for a long time existed a disconnect, between the public systems and the private systems, where everybody was doing everything by themselves individually, in pockets which led to inefficiencies and wasted resources. But, partnership and coming together has brought in to place increased efficiency in not only utilization of resources, but harmonizing what everyone is doing without duplication. For me, this is the correct step in the right direction that will ensure that our targets and goals are achieved.”Dr. Barnabas Bwambok, Vestergaard Frandsen
Overview of Governance
CAMA is co-chaired by Chevron Corporation and Access Bank Plc.
