Join PATH at the 7th Multilateral Initiative on Malaria (MIM) Conference in Dakar – April 15-20, 2018

PATH experts to share new research and innovations in tackling the malaria epidemic globally

PATH malaria experts will join thousands of leaders and scientists from over 70 countries at the 7th Multilateral Initiative on Malaria (MIM) Conference in Dakar, Senegal, April 15-20. At the conference, PATH researchers will share new research in malaria diagnostics, drugs, and vaccines and share insights on how these tools are being used to accelerate the fight against malaria both globally and within sub-Saharan Africa.

The 7th MIM Conference will have the theme “Dakar II: Two decades of progress, challenges and perspectives in ending malaria” and address the fact that despite incredible progress in the fight against malaria, there is still an urgent need for new innovations to end the epidemic for good. At the MIM Conference, PATH leaders will present at eight symposia, five scientific sessions, and will showcase five posters on all aspects of PATH’s malaria portfolio, from diagnostics and vaccines to drugs and systems and services. As a proud partner of Senegal’s national malaria control program, PATH will also share progress that has been made against malaria in the MIM conference’s host country. See the MIM program for the full schedule.

PATH experts will present recent vaccine development breakthroughs and implementation updates at two symposia and one panel discussion during the conference.
