Malaria Dialogues: Join the discussion

Burnet Institute

25 June, 2018

Bringing together a fragmented global malaria elimination response is one of the driving forces behind the groundbreaking 1st Malaria World Congress (MWC2018) in Melbourne next month.

Congress founder, Professor Brendan Crabb AC says for the first time malaria researchers, policy makers, international development experts, and the various sectors focused on eliminating malaria will be in the same room. Connecting and collaboration are key drivers behind the inaugural Malaria World Congress and vital if we are to achieve the goal of eliminating this devastating disease.

Ahead of the Congress, you can join in a fascinating series of online Malaria Dialogues, hosted by Dr Tim France. They are designed to promote collaborative action against malaria.
