About the APPG on Malaria & NTDs

Established in 2005, the APPG on Malaria & Neglected Tropical Diseases (APPMG) has an established history of actively engaging UK parliamentarians on the issues of malaria and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). The APPMG facilitates and implements an active calendar of parliamentary and public events, policy briefings to support parliamentary debates and specialist meetings to inform and mobilise UK parliamentarians in support of priorities and policies that will accelerate progress against malaria and NTDs.

The priorities of the APPMG are guided by the Chair and Officers of the group, all sitting MPs and Peers in Westminster, and implemented with support from a part-time Coordinator to provide parliamentary and policy advice and administrative functions. The APPMG benefits from an active base of expert stakeholders from across academia, research, multilateral organisations, industry and the private sector as well as civil society. This is a significant resource to the APPMG in understanding and working to highlight key opportunities to engage parliamentarians on a wide range of topics from access to medicines, R&D for new tools, aid architecture, funding gaps, to evidence-based policy to inform control and elimination programmes.

The APPMG is looking for an enthusiastic self-starter to fill the role of Coordinator.
