The WHO Global Malaria Programme (GMP) convened a three-day Technical Consultation from 5 to 7 June 2019. The aim of the Technical Consultation was to review the existing evidence from genetic epidemiological research studies and use cases and assess the role of such research in the development of future policies and the potential for malaria programmes to make practical use of genomics.
