Contributed By: Nurul Jamil, Executive Coordinator & Consultant to GLX Foundation GLX Foundation works in partnership with communities, health systems, government and non-government agencies, academic institutions, local and international organizations to ensure good practices that support the delivery of effective services. Together, we work to establish a healthy environment conducive for the detection and treatment of malaria and other communicable diseases. Especially targeted are groups mostly at risk using innovative and unique educational preventative strategies.
We support capacity building and development through strengthening of the health care systems, maintaining resource centre for communicable diseases and working with countries to assist the development of comprehensive national malaria control strategic plans. We support capacity strengthening through human resource development working with regional and national initiatives. We are also developing approaches to link malaria control with that of other communicable diseases. Our strategies involve the technology of "knowledge transfer" with lucrative incentives to create long lasting preventive atmosphere.
We engage non-governmental and community-based organizations to create a new generation of malaria champions and activists who are well resourced and empowered with preventive strategies. We are also helping to unify civil society voices and actions to ensure that more vulnerable groups receive effective prevention and treatment interventions.
