APMEN welcomes two new partners: Thailand and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

April 15, 2011 - 18:36 -- The Global Heal...

The Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network (APMEN) announced that two new partners have joined the Network – Thailand and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Thailand is the eleventh County Partner to join the Network. Thailand has made significant progress over the last 10 years, reducing cases by 75% from 2000 to 2009, and has developed a strategy of sub-national malaria elimination, focusing on the central and eastern portions of the country. The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) joins the ranks of the Network’s 21 Partner Institutions.
