Kigali Summit on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases Social Media Toolkit - Summit Launch

The Kigali Summit in June 2020 will super-charge efforts to end malaria and neglected tropical diseases

On January 27, the Government of Rwanda will announce the Kigali Summit on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs). The Summit will be held in Kigali on June 25, 2020. The announcement event will come just days before the first ever World Neglected Tropical Diseases Day on January 30 and on the eve of the launch of Rwanda’s nationwide Zero Malaria Starts with Me campaign on January 28.

The Kigali Summit in June will be the first formal Summit to bring a united global focus on ending these preventable diseases that have been devastating the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people for thousands of years. The Summit is being co-hosted by two global partnerships tackling the diseases, the RBM Partnership to End Malaria and Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases.

Held on the sidelines of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Kigali, the Summit will capitalise on the presence of the Heads of State of countries who represent almost two thirds of the global burden of malaria and neglected tropical diseases.

By coming together now, the two health communities aim to share knowledge and resources to accelerate progress towards global goals aimed at ending malaria and neglected tropical diseases within a generation.

These diseases are united by the fact that they are diseases of inequity; they disproportionately affect women, children under five and people living in extreme poverty or remote communities.
