Engaging policy audiences

Eliminating Malaria: Evidence, impact, and policy

By 25/04/2019

LSHTM Malaria Centre, together with the Malaria Consortium and the Wellcome Trust, are hosting an evening panel discussion as part of this year’s ongoing World Malaria Day campaign. This session will also be live-streamed/recorded here.
Tuesday, 30 April, 17.30-19:00 (GMT)
Venue: Manson Lecture Theatre, LSHTM, Keppel Street, London,WC1E 7HT

While more countries in Asia are moving closer to malaria elimination, progress and perceived challenges vary by context. This event will share insights from research and programmes across Asia, and generate a discussion around the use of data and its role in achieving elimination.

The session will begin with two presentations: key findings from the newly published Malaria Futures for Asia (MalaFA) report, commissioned by Novartis Social Business; and latest research from LSHTM’s Malaria Centre. We will then hear from colleagues at the Malaria Atlas Project (MAP) who will announce the winners of the Wellcome Data Re-use Prize for Malaria. Finally, we will bring together a diverse panel (including representatives from Malaria Consortium, Novartis, MAP, and LSHTM) to consider how research and implementation programmes can advise policymakers on malaria elimination.  The session is open to all but seating is limited, so first come first seated! The session will also be live-streamed/recorded here. Please join us for a drinks reception after the event to continue the discussion.
