LSHTM Lecture: “Current issues in global health: Malaria​”

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) is inviting you to the Global Health Lecture Series titled Current issues in global health: Malaria​”.

Great strides have been made in reducing global malaria transmission over the past 30 years but it remains one of the world’s most devastating diseases with the burden particularly high in sub-Saharan Africa. Whilst news of a WHO-recommended malaria vaccine was well-received in 2022, it seems unlikely to be a silver bullet for malaria elimination. Furthermore, other serious threats to malaria control are emerging, including increasing resistance in both humans and mosquitoes to malaria drugs and insecticides. This seminar hosted by the Malaria Centre will highlight some of the threats and challenges faced by the global malaria community in the battle to eliminate this deadly disease. 

Date: Monday December 11, 2023

Time: 17:30 – 18:30 (UK time zone)

Place: Online and London, United Kingdom

The panel will be chaired by the Directors of the Malaria Center:

  • Associate Professor Jackie Cook
  • Associate Professor Sam Wassmer

Admission is free and open to all.
