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

(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-
ence attendee with a global perspective on the scientific solutions 
to effectively prevent malaria and reduce its burden.
