The upcoming conference of the Pan Africa Mosquito Control Association (PAMCA) will take place from 23-25 September, 2019 in Yaoundé, Cameroon. Like we did during the last MIM conference, MalariaWorld and the MESA Correspondent Program will work together to provide you with an impression of the PAMCA conference presentations.
The MESA Correspondent volunteers report on the latest in malaria research from conferences around the world. The synopses are shared online, enabling people who could not attend the meeting to read about the latest advances. The MESA Correspondents Program is a collaboration between MESA and the conference organizers.
