"The role of malaria transmission-blocking interventions in the global effort for malaria elimination and eradication"
Friday, March 10, 2017 at 3 p.m.

Background and goals for the talk:  Dr. Dinglasan will provide a programmatic overview of the malaria eradication research agenda (malERA). The malERA road map has been recently reviewed in light of new developments and observations from on-going malaria control and elimination activities in the field and a "refreshed" program plan is forthcoming.  To fully appreciate where we are going, we need to know where we are coming from and the goal of this seminar is to provide a big picture look at how we are approaching the goal of malaria elimination and eradication (since the 1950s to malERA and beyond) and to provide vignettes of what types of interventions or enabling technologies are still needed to accelerate malaria prevalence to zero.
