Abstract: A meeting was held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan to establish a Roll Back Malaria partnership in the central Asian republics and Kazakhstan. The representatives of malaria surveillance and control programmes in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan and representatives of about 30 United Nations organizations, institutions, embassies, international banks, nongovernmental organizations and foundations were present. The meeting reviewed the regional and country malaria epidemiological situation and discussed the objectives and strategies of the Roll Back Malaria initiative. Three main malaria epidemiological strata are present in central Asia: a large-scale epidemic (Tajikistan), a limited epidemic (Turkmenistan), and a high risk of malaria re-establishment (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan). Participants appreciated the efforts made by national authorities, assisted by WHO, to tackle the malaria problem, especially with the limited resources available. The conditions for establishing a Roll Back Malaria partnership in central Asia are already present and can easily be made effective by building on the existing collaboration between the central Asian republics and Kazakhstan. Such a partnership should incorporate the organizations listed above. Governments of the five countries concerned should take a leading role as these countries already have programmes, plans of action and an indication of the resources required
