Gary Ginsburg, EVP Corporate Marketing & Communications at Time Warner Inc. and Board member of Malaria No More commented: “Malaria No More’s new partnership with Discop Africa presents the opportunity to leverage the power of media to raise awareness of malaria and save lives. Since 2000, the malaria mortality rate has fallen 51% among children under the age of five, but we still have our work cut out for us. As partners, we will encourage media leaders to sign on to support the campaign and rally their viewers to end malaria deaths.”

Special features, already part of the Discop Africa 2014 programme, will include a series of high level conferences assessing the current level of development of Television in Africa.  The “20 YEARS OF DEMOCRACY / 20 YEARS OF TELEVISION IN AFRICA” summit will be organised in partnership with the Ministry of Arts and Culture of the Republic of South Africa.
