It will give examples of innovative programs designed to help strengthen the delivery of life-saving drugs, and examine how MMV and partners have, through malaria eradication efforts, been contributing to the advancement of women and children’s health, meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and ensuring that even those most difficult to reach can access life-saving medical care in time.
