The Multilateral Initiative on Malaria (MIM) will hold the 3rd Pan-
African Conference on Malaria in Arusha, Tanzania in November 2002.
The Arusha Conference (2002) will focus on scientific progress and
potential in malaria research with the aim of promoting the exchange
of scientific ideas within Africa. The Conference will have specific
sessions to discuss mechanisms for linking scientific research and
malaria control activities. More than twenty MIM-supported research
projects across Africa will also be presented.
The Conference will consist of plenary presentations by world-
renowned experts, numerous symposia on a broad range of topics, and
daily poster sessions. There will be ample opportunities to converse

sions. The Conference will be organized by the National Institute for
Medical Research (NIMR)- Tanzania, the Organization of African Unity
(OAU), Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and the National Institutes of Health
(NIH)-USA in collaboration with other agencies world-wide. The diver-
sity of participants and symposia panellists will provide the Confer-
