The Science of Malaria Eradication

2-7 February 2014
Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico

Organized in collaboration with the Malaria Eradication Scientific Alliance (MESA), The Science of Malaria Eradication is part of the Keystone Symposia Global Health Series, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

This symposium provides the most comprehensive look at the cutting edge of the science of malaria eradication as it advances. For the first time since the paradigm shift from malaria control to the interruption of transmission, research, development, innovation and lessons learned will all be captured. The central goal of the meeting is to provide a unique and needed space for malaria eradication scientists to share new information and advance the scientific debate.

Last year, MMV's Ian Bathurst Global Health Travel Awards were presented to 12 Keystone Symposia Malaria Conference participants studying parasitology in disease-endemic regions. Read what they said about their experience.
