The global picture of malaria: optimism or caution?
Refreshments will be provided - Please arrive promptly.
Malaria remains major global health threat. At the end of the last century it was described as a public health disaster. In the last fifteen years there has been remarkable progress in reducing cases and deaths due to malaria. This has led to a welcome new optimism and a shift towards the idea of global elimination culminating in eradication. However the threats of underfinancing as well as emerging drug and insecticide resistance mean that many challenges remain to be overcome.
