The Elimination 8 is a SADC ministerial initiative, designed as a platform for regional collaboration towards malaria elimination within the SADC region. The eight countries, which make up the E8 are Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. These countries are highly interconnected by population movement as well as shared malaria ecologies, making it near impossible for one country to eliminate malaria without collaboration with its neighbours.
The Ministers of Health of these eight countries have therefore committed to develop this platform for joint planning and accountability. Achieving elimination involves the design and meticulous execution of advanced disease and entomological surveillance systems, establishment of capacity for quality diagnosis, and control of parasite movement through the region’s porous borders.
The Secretariat is based in Windhoek, Namibia. The E8S Secretariat Headquarters Office is responsible for E8S Secretariat policies and procedures. It is also responsible for all procurement and contracting actions
VISION: To have a malaria-free southern Africa
GOAL: To enable and accelerate zero local transmission in the four frontline countries by 2020 (and the second line countries by 2030) through the provision of a joint platform for collaboration and joint strategic programming.
