'The science of malaria eradication' Keystone Symposia

Tuesday Feb 4th

The Keystone Symposium on The Science of Malaria Eradication entered its second day of activities with a focus on drug based strategies and health systems research in the elimination context. The evidence for use of single dose primaquine to clear P. falciparum infections, the new K-13 artemisinin resistance marker, and how clearing asymptomatic infections in children can improve cognition and reduce transmission all featured in the animated discussions.

'The science of malaria eradication' Keystone Symposia
Monday Feb 3rd

From bioethical considerations, to mapping trends in malaria transmission with basic biology. From inspiring lessons in other eradication campaigns, to regulatory issues around tools which benefit populations, to novel genetic technologies which modify mosquitoes and the parasite life cycle. The first day of the Keystone Symposium on the science of malaria eradication set the scene for sharing and debating new discoveries and innovative approaches to malaria eradication.
