4th MIM Pan-African Malaria Conference - Roll Back Malaria Partnership's Forum V Global Partners Meeting

As malaria deaths remain at alarming levels in Africa - with a child succumbing every 30 seconds and the devastating disease a root cause of the continent's pervasive poverty - an unprecedented gathering will convene in Africa to highlight new findings emerging from the work of Western and African malaria researchers.

In mid-November, 1,500 scientists, policymakers, African ministers, health care workers, community members, and other experts on the diseases will gather in Yaound, Cameroon, for the Fourth MIM Pan-African Malaria Conference November 13 - 18 and the Roll Back Malaria Partnership's Forum V Global Partners Meeting November 18 - 19. The conferences will collectively highlight an Africa-wide effort to empower communities, battle complacency and eliminate the many barriers that are keeping effective prevention and treatment from reaching the most vulnerable. The Roll Back Malaria Partnership will report on a coordinated plan to reduce malaria deaths in Africa and worldwide. Journalist site visits to research projects and malaria endemic communities will be organized prior to the conference.

This assembly offers a unique opportunity to find in one venue the world's leading experts on all aspects of malaria from prevention to control and from basic research to program implementation, as they tackle pressing scientific, social and economic issues confronting efforts to subdue the disease. Issues to be addressed include:

  • New medicines for malaria: With drug resistance spreading, scientists report on new advances in drugs to control malaria.
  • Indigenous plants as sources for new anti-malarials: Is there another Artemisia out there? Results of collection and screening efforts for anti-malarial agents in dozens of plants.
  • Country level commitment to malaria control: Leadership and ownership are essential if malaria is to become no longer "a fact of life".
  • Insecticid
