       Overview 
       Overview
      The malaria elimination initiative is focussed on supporting countries to succeed in elimination of both falciparum and vivax malaria. We have a broad range of activities from desk based research producing advocacy and summary materials to highlight the substantial progress of malaria control and elimination world wide, to field based research exploring active surveillance strategies, efficacy of drug based transmission interventions, costing studies of elimination programs and more qualitative research such as case studies. The program also supports countries by supporting regional networks of countries to eliminate malaria (the Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network, APMEN and the Eliminating 8, E8 in southern Africa).

      We do have opportunities to send students to support field research studies.
