More than a third of the world’s population is at risk of contracting malaria – it is estimated that 200 people, primarily children in Africa, die of malaria every hour of every day every year. Malaria is one of the main obstacles to socio-economic development in Africa. Effective vaccines against malaria would have an enormous effect on reducing the negative impact of malaria.

 

The second conference in the series – Malaria Vaccines for the World– MVW 2010 is the follow-up to the successful MVW 2007 meeting held in London and again will offer researchers a fresh new forum to discuss the current status of new malaria vaccines initiatives, vaccine candidates and clinical trials. MVW 2010 will focus attention on ‘Vaccine Issues’ in relation to Malaria as a worldwide disease.

 

MVW 2010 will be of interest to scientists, physicians and other professionals from the academic, industrial/commercial and governmental/policy/regulatory sectors who have an interest in the development, assessment, trends and deployment of vaccines for the worldwide problem that is malaria – the cause of over two million deaths worldwide each year.
