KIGALI, RWANDA

Coronavirus update


The Kigali Summit on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) will take place on June 24th 2021.

Taking place alongside the 26th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), and hosted by the Government of Rwanda, the Kigali Summit will reaffirm the promise to end malaria and NTDs. 

In doing so, it will recognise and showcase how investments in fighting these debilitating diseases are critical for building resilient health systems, improving pandemic preparedness and prevention, and supporting healthier populations whilst leaving no one behind. 

The Kigali Summit will convene Presidents, Prime Ministers, CEOs, philanthropists, scientific experts, global influencers and community champions, culminating in a high-level session and a Call to Action for world leaders. Throughout the day, high-level speeches, commitments, engaging content and thought-provoking discussions will highlight the action needed to end malaria and NTDs once and for all, with a focus on four key themes:

  • Health financing
  • Regional coordination
  • Integration
  • Data and innovation.
