UK General Election Period

From Thursday 30 May 2024, during the period of dissolution of the UK Parliament for the General Election, All-Party Parliamentary Groups cease to exist and cannot conduct any business.

Strict Parliamentary rules prohibit APPGs from making public comment, holding events, undertaking research, issuing communications, or allowing others to do so in their name during a General Election. They are also prohibited from any sort of campaigning.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases will therefore not be active until it is reconstituted in a new Parliament. 

Existing content, and the group’s membership list, should be considered historic.


About the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases

We're here to build cross-party parliamentary support in the fight to end malaria and neglected tropical diseases. 

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases provides a forum for exploring issues pertaining to the fight against malaria and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). The Group brings together Parliamentarians, academics, and sector professionals to discuss both the problems and solutions to defeating some of the most devastating diseases in the world. The Group aims to strengthen cross-Party Parliamentary support for UK leadership and investment in the fight to end malaria and NTDs, and to cultivate a strong group of Parliamentary champions.

This is not an official website of the House of Commons or the House of Lords. It has not been approved by either House or its Committees. All-Party Parliamentary Groups are informal groups of Members of both Houses with a common interest in particular issues. The views expressed on this website are those of the Group.

Due Diligence Statement

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases is not funded by a foreign government. The APPG receives funding and in-kind benefits from charities, research institutions, and organisations working across malaria and NTDs both in the UK and globally. These organisations receive funding from governments including the UK, the US, and the EU, for specific work relating to malaria and NTDs. No funding that is given to the APPG comes from this specific funding. The APPG’s workplan is solely agreed to by its Officers.
