Let’s ‘cut to the chase’ on malaria elimination in the Greater Mekong Sub-region.

February 2, 2019 - 13:24 -- Sean Hewitt

The Greater Mekong Sub-region has made remarkable progress towards eliminating malaria in recent years, but efforts are now faltering in some areas. The development of tools to control forest-based transmission is taking too long and efforts to control malaria amongst high-risk mobile people are failing. If countries are to meet their elimination targets and prevent the spread of multi-drug resistant falciparum malaria, urgent and radical changes will be required.

New from MESA: Open consultation on WHO prioritization framework for the R&D of malaria health products

January 18, 2019 - 14:42 -- MESA Alliance

WHO is undertaking a consultative process to solicit inputs into a prioritization framework for the research and development (R&D) of malaria health products. A draft report “Analysis of Malaria R&D Priorities” identifies five key challenges that represent threats or barriers to achieving the WHO Global Technical Strategy for Malaria 2016–2030 goals. This early copy of the report is being shared at a time when WHO is exploring how best to guide and support the development of priority solutions to meet public health needs.

WHO welcomes feedback on this draft report until 28 February 2019, including the correction of errors or omissions, updates to product development pipelines, and perspectives on the approach to prioritization.
