The Malaria Policy Advisory Group (MPAG) – formerly called Malaria Policy Advisory Committee – was established in 2011 to provide independent advice to WHO to enhance the control and elimination of malaria. An independent advisory group bringing together the world’s foremost experts on malaria, the MPAG provides strategic advice and technical input to WHO, and extends to all aspects of malaria control and elimination, as part of a transparent, responsive and credible process. The MPAG advises the WHO Director-General and the Global Malaria Programme (GMP) specifically on:
- appropriate malaria policies and standards based on data from malaria programme implementation by Member States and malaria control partners as well as reviews of the best available evidence;
- engagement of WHO in malaria-related initiatives;
- major issues and challenges to achieving global malaria goals; and
- identification of priority activities to address identified challenges.
