"Moving Towards Malaria Elimination: Investing in Research and Control"
In October 2013 the next Pan African MIM conference on malaria will be organised in Durban, South Africa. It follows after the MIM 2009 meeting that was held in Nairobi. Although this seems far ahead of us, at MalariaWorld we are planning to inform you in the best possible way about this upcoming event.
We will also liaise with the MIM secretariat to see how we can best inform you about the conference and provide you with all necessary information on time.
Please visit our MIM2013 forum regularly, or read our Special MIM2013 section here to reads the latest updates...

The Multilateral Initiative on Malaria (MIM) started in 1997 with the aim of giving African scientists an equal voice with Northern scientists in making decisions about malaria research in Africa. Is there a need for MIM today with the large increase in funding for malaria research from governments and foundations? I conclude that MIM is still needed today to support African scientists’ investigator-initiated research and training.
