Twenty years after the first MIM Conference which drew attention to major questions for malaria research, and identify ways to strengthen and sustain the research capacity of malaria endemic countries in Africa, several countries in Africa are now engaging towards malaria elimination. Focus in Senegal, the first country report in the Roll Back Malaria Progress & Impact series describes how Senegal achieves a spectacular drop in its malaria burden.
The exemplarity of the collaboration between scientists, the National Malaria program and partners is a key of the success.
