Malaria Consortium is delighted to be at the Multilateral Initiative Malaria Conference where key stakeholders will reflect upon two decades of progress and challenges in the fight against malaria, and identify new opportunities to sustain the gains made.
The organization will present three symposia (for agenda see pdf attachment) with subjects ranging from digital health system strengthening and seasonal malaria chemoprevention in the Sahel to residual malaria transmission in Asia. Malaria Consortium experts will also present posters on the co-implementation of malaria, neglected tropical diseases and sanitation, the importance of community involvement and the necessary conditions for continuous net distribution.
The novelty of the organisation’s participation at MIM is definitely the Q & A sessions. During these lunchtime conversations (at booth 123 in the exhibition hall) top scientists will be paired with crucial stakeholders, and given a platform to share expertise on how to fight malaria with a shared voice. The conversations are open to everyone and will cover different themes, including elimination, preventive treatments and vaccines, surveillance as well as child health.
Coffee, biscuits, and a phone charging station will also be provided.
