About Elimination 8
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 near impossible for one country to eliminate malaria without collaboration with its neighbours. 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, high impact programs that will steer the region closer to its goal of zero transmission of malaria by 2030. The E8 Initiative was designed to create an enabling environment for the eight-member states to jointly plan and monitor national and regional activities that are mutually reinforcing, and that accelerate the individual country goals of malaria elimination.

The Ministerial and Technical Committees of the E8 are supported by the SADC Elimination 8 Secretariat (E8 Secretariat), which coordinates diplomatic and programmatic collaboration between the eight countries. The Secretariat is also responsible for coordinating the execution of the Strategic Plan, in partnership with funding and technical partners of the E8. The Secretariat is based in Windhoek, Namibia. The E8S  Secretariat Headquarters Office is responsible for E8S Secretariat policies and procedures. It is also responsible for all procurement and contracting actions
