1.3 millions deaths due to malaria were recorded, mainly in the tropics.
A growing number of public-private partnerships are being established to give fresh impetus to treat such neglected diseases. These creative partnerships involve governmental and private sector organizations , such as foundations, universities, corporations including pharmaceutical companies and biotechnology firms, community-based organizations and other nongovernmental organizations, all of which play a critical role in the area of global health, particularly in the fight against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
A decade ago, such entities were few and far between. Today, however, there are over 100 international private-public partnerships, with a combined investment of several billion dollars. 80% of these partnerships are funded through philanthropic organizations. Many of these key institutional, private and industrial actors are based in the BioAlps region.
