A major gap in the malaria response landscape is the absence of a forum where representatives of the entire malaria world can meet. Our key aim for the inaugural World Congress on Malaria is to unify and energise the broader malaria community around a common sense of purpose, including one that links malaria with the wider global health and human development goals of Universal Health Coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals. Together we can learn from each other, plan for the implementation of cross sector strategies and galvanise the effort for the eradication of malaria.
The conference sessions will feed into a final round table discussion leading to joint declarations by Global and Asia Pacific leaders committing to the goal of Malaria Elimination in our region by 2030 and a roadmap for steps and targets needed to achieve this.
Join us at this significant event to make malaria history.
