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 impossible for one country to eliminate malaria without collaboration with its neighbors. 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 E8 Ministerial and Technical Committees have developed a 5-year strategic plan to develop innovative, game-changing programs that will steer the region closer to its goal of zero transmission of malaria by 2030.
The Ministerial and Technical Committees of the E8 are supported by an E8 Secretariat, which coordinates diplomatic and programmatic collaboration between the eight countries. The Secretariat is based out of Windhoek, Namibia and is also responsible for coordinating the execution of the Strategic Plan, in partnership with the funding and technical partners of the E8.
The Position
The E8 was awarded an US$18million regional grant by the Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The E8 Secretariat will serve as the principal recipient for the grant, overseeing all functions of effective program performance and impact, robust financial management, and monitoring and evaluation. The role of the Secretariat also includes management of the implementation by the Secretariat as well as its contractors across the eight member states of the E8, ensuring financial accountability by implementing contractors.
