Tags: 

MESA (the Malaria Eradication Scientific Alliance) follows-up on the malERA agenda and provides a dedicated platform for the community in order to accelerate the translation of the science of malaria eradication for impact. With the community, MESA monitors progress and takes the next steps to advance the science of malaria eradication. MESA reviews existing evidence and supports projects on research questions critical to malaria eradication. For more information, please visit www.mesamalaria.org.

New from MESA: Plasmodium vivax research: A conversation with ICREA Prof Hernando A. del Portillo

July 29, 2020 - 11:41 -- MESA Alliance

ICREA Prof Hernando A. del Portillo studied molecular aspects of parasites at the University of Georgia, USA, where he received his PhD, followed by two WHO postdoctoral trainings at the New York University Medical Centre (USA) and the Institut Pasteur (France) where he specialized in molecular biology of malaria parasites.

New from MESA: The U.S. President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) celebrates 15 years of partnership and shares over 100 operational research projects in MESA Track

July 28, 2020 - 16:39 -- MESA Alliance

Since 2006, PMI has partnered with countries hardest hit by malaria, supporting introduction and scaling of proven, life-saving malaria interventions protecting more than 570 million people at risk annually. In countries where PMI works, their investments have significantly contributed to a 27% decline in malaria cases and a 60% decline in malaria deaths.

New from MESA: Towards a vaccine for Plasmodium vivax (ongoing)

June 25, 2020 - 12:45 -- MESA Alliance

Malaria-free world has been an ultimate goal embraced by WHO just decade after its foundation, however only 38 countries in temperate zone were able to eliminate malaria since then. In 2017, WHO Executive Board reasserted their full and firm support towards malaria eradication. The lancet commission on Malaria eradication has called for global experts and policy makers to agree upon an ambitious target of eradicating malaria by 2050.

New from MESA: Clinical Epidemiology of COVID-19 in Malaria Settings (ongoing)

June 25, 2020 - 12:35 -- MESA Alliance

As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to evolve it is essential to mitigate risk of increased incidence of other infectious diseases. In malaria-endemic regions, it will be important to understand the potential impact to epidemiological changes, trends in transmission, and clinical presentation of COVID-19 and malaria individually, and as co-infections.
