More than 180 scientists, malaria programme managers and policy makers from around the world have come together through a consultative process to update the research agenda for malaria elimination and eradication, first produced in 2011. The outcome is a series of seven ‘malERA Refresh’ (malaria eradication research agenda) papers that have undergone expert peer review and will soon be published in an open access journal.
The aim of this exercise, coordinated by the Malaria Eradication Scientific Alliance (MESA), was to define a forward-looking research and development agenda that would accelerate progress to a world free from malaria.
