1st Malaria World Congress (MWC2018)

Mwc2018   510 x 288

Join Australia’s leading malaria researchers, clinicians, government health leaders and worldwide experts for the 1st Malaria World Congress.

Momentum for malaria elimination is unstoppable

Ahead of the Malaria World Congress, Professor Brendan Crabb AC speaks about his optimism for malaria elimination.

Dr Philippe Boeuf explains his research into malaria and pregnancy.


Dr Ricardo Ataide will be attending the MWC2018 and explains why you should too!

Come and learn from peers, plan for implementation of cross-sector strategies and galvanise the effort for the eradication of malaria.

Malaria remains a preventable global health emergency and a disease whose results continue to trap individuals, communities and countries in poverty.

The Congress aims to unify and energise the broader malaria community around a common sense of purpose, and to link malaria with the wider global health and human development goals of Universal Health Coverage and the World Health Organization’s Sustainable Development Goals.

THREE KEY THEMES:

  • Malaria Today

The recent history and present of malaria control and elimination efforts.

  • Putting Malaria Elimination into a Global Health Context

How malaria sits within the broader global health context, with focus on the Sustainable Development Goals, Universal Health Care and health security.

  • Meeting the Challenges of Malaria Eradication

How we move forward together to enable sustainable impact in malaria endemic countries.

Message from Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon Julie Bishop MP

Congress sessions will feed into a final round table discussion leading to joint declarations by Global and Asia Pacific leaders committing to the goal of Malaria Elimination in our region by 2030, and a roadmap for steps and targets needed to achieve this.
