Malaria remains a preventable global health emergency and a disease whose results continue to trap individuals, communities and countries in poverty.
The Congress aims to unify and energise the broader malaria community around a common sense of purpose, and to link malaria with the wider global health and human development goals of Universal Health Coverage and the World Health Organization’s Sustainable Development Goals.
THREE KEY THEMES:
The recent history and present of malaria control and elimination efforts.
Putting Malaria Elimination into a Global Health Context
How malaria sits within the broader global health context, with focus on the Sustainable Development Goals, Universal Health Care and health security.
Meeting the Challenges of Malaria Eradication
