Malaria Consortium at ASTMH 2022
30 October-3 November | Seattle & online
Dear Partners and Supporters,

We are excited to be presenting some our latest research at the annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene (ASTMH) this year, kicking off on Sunday 30 October in Seattle and online.

In addition to the science, hear from our experts about how we're adapting interventions to reach marginalised and remote communities and work in partnership with them, and other stakeholders, to better understand how we can embed equitable health programmes that best serve them.

Learn how our research is helping us to optimise the positive impact we are able to have on the lives of those affected by preventable diseases like malaria and pneuomonia, from implementing seasonal malaria chemoprevention in new geographies beyond the Sahel, successfully implementing Plasmodium vivax radical cure in Cambodia through community health workers, our work to strengthen disease surveillance in Mozambique and our dialogues and social behaviour change work with communities to ensure that our interventions are most appropriate to the context and accepted and sustainable in the long term.

You can view a full schedule of Malaria Consortium’s activities at the conference on our website, including the two symposiums we're involved with on pneumonia research priorities and seasonal malaria chemoprevention. If you're not attending the event, our posters and presentations will be published on our website following the sessions so you won't miss out.
