8th MIM Society Conference
The 8th Multilateral Initiative on Malaria (MIM) Society Conference will be held in Kigali, Rwanda on 21-27 April 2024 under the theme, 'Grassroots mobilization to end malaria: invest, innovate and integrate'.
MIM was established in 1997 as an alliance of international organizations and individuals with the shared goal of strengthening and sustaining collaboration through research and training and raising the capability of malaria endemic countries in Africa to conduct research to develop and improve tools for malaria control. MIM 2024 aims to build on the momentum and awareness generated by previous meetings, promote global collaboration in research to fight malaria in Africa and ultimately ensure the availability of a critical mass of competent malaria researchers and control managers needed for effective and sustained containment of the disease in Africa.
MIM contributes to global efforts to address the problem of malaria by facilitating the emergence of dynamic malaria research networks and collaboration with malaria control programs in Africa through the following objectives:
Developing sustainable malaria research capacity in Africa – through international and Pan-African scientific partnerships and training.
Promoting global communication and cooperation – between institutions in an effort to maximize impact of resources and avoid duplication of effort.
Ensuring research findings are applied to malaria treatment and control – to translate practical problems into manageable research questions, by stimulating and facilitating dialogues among scientists, public health professionals, policy makers and industry.
Raising international public awareness of the problem of malaria – to raise the status of malaria on political agendas to mobilize resources and action.
