Corporate Alliance on Malaria in Africa (CAMA)

The Corporate Alliance on Malaria in Africa (CAMA) is a unique coalition of companies from various industries, all with business interests in Africa, launched by Marathon Oil in 2007. With GBCHealth as implementing partner, CAMA brings the collective force and voice of the private sector to improve the impact of malaria control efforts in Sub-Saharan Africa.

CAMA’s founding member companies—many of whom already implement or finance leading-edge malaria initiatives—are Marathon Oil Corporation, Bayer Environmental Science, Global Industries, Cameron International, Coca Cola Africa, Chevron, EDG Engineers, Halliburton,
Noble Energy, and Wood Group. Each company has committed to CAMA’s goals and objectives and plays an active role in accomplishing CAMA's mandate.

Our Vision: To reduce the incidence of malaria by promoting private sector cooperation on malaria control projects in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Our Mission: To provide a forum for corporations, working with governments and NGO’s, to cooperate on existing malaria intervention projects in Sub-Saharan Africa, encourage the creation of new partnerships, share best practices and promote understanding of the fight against malaria.

Our Goal: To maximize malaria intervention benefits through the optimization of incountry cooperation, information sharing and private sector advocacy.
