ASTMH 2009 Symposium: Understanding more about the antimalarials market in Africa: Progress in a new field of Research

20 November 2009
Washington DC, USA

MMV hosted a symposium at ASTMH, looking at measuring the antimalarials market in Africa.

Following a highly successful symposium the year prior, which was the first ever at ASTHM to consider the interaction between market data and public health need, MMV presented at the 2009 Symposium the results of an extremely fruitful year.

The symposium took place Friday 20 November 2009 from 3:45pm - 5:30pm in the Washington I Room, Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, Washington DC. Download a full symposium description [PDF: 46Kb]

Presentations addressed the following questions:

  • What kinds of market data do donors and companies require to improve investments?
  • What do we know about donor funding for antimalarials?
  • Sizing the market, can we use market analysis approaches commonly used in USA/Europe in an African context?
  • How can we measure what is really happening at the end of the supply chain in rural Africa?
