About MalariaWorld

MalariaWorld started back in 2004 as part of the MIMCom project under the National Library of Medicine (Washington DC, USA). It has grown from less than 100 subscribers to 10.600+ members as of October 2020. From mid-2007 to December 2010, MalariaWorld was produced weekly by K&S Consulting before it moved to the Dutch Malaria Foundation, a non-profit organization that (amongst other projects) focuses on the dissemination of information about malaria in the broadest sense, with a particular focus on serving professionals engaged in research and control of malaria.

MalariaWorld is a project of the Dutch Malaria Foundation
