On the 18th and 19th of November 2005 the Constellation facilated the core parallel sessions of a global malaria meeting, the Forum V. It brought together an assembly of all partners and constituencies of the Roll Back Malaria (RBM) Partnership of the United Nations.
The forum was designed around a participatory approach that aimed at giving all participants the opportunity to share their experience in rolling back malaria and to contribute to defining the actions needed for a successful fight against malaria. This participatory process culminated in the common ownership by the assembly of the Yaoundé Call to Action published at the end of Forum V.
Could this be the beginning of a new era of UN meetings based around sharing of experience rather than opinion or ideology?
