“There was no precedence, no historical formula or traditional society-like backing for this meeting. So everyone involved in bringing about this meeting, both individuals and organisations, had to not just share the vision but take bit of a leap of faith.” – Founder and Co-Chair of the 1st Malaria World Congress (MWC2018), Professor Brendan Crabb AC.
