MESA (the Malaria Eradication Scientific Alliance) follows-up on the malERA agenda and provides a dedicated platform for the community in order to accelerate the translation of the science of malaria eradication for impact. With the community, MESA monitors progress and takes the next steps to advance the science of malaria eradication. MESA reviews existing evidence and supports projects on research questions critical to malaria eradication. For more information, please visit www.mesamalaria.org.

Title: MESA asks five experts pick their top malaria paper from today

May 7, 2015 - 17:00 -- MESA Alliance

Maintaining investment in R&D is essential to counter this threat and continue to drive down malaria deaths and infection.

News from MESA: The UK Parliament's 750th birthday & malaria research

January 29, 2015 - 19:00 -- MESA Alliance

On the UK Parliament's 750th birthday, the All Party Parliamentary Group met to discuss collaborative initiatives in malaria research.

In the historic setting of the Palace of Westminster, on January 20th, the All Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases (APPMG) met to discuss collaborative initiatives in malaria research. Last year, the UK Government pledged to increase funding for the fight against malaria up to £500 million every year, a goal the APPMG hopes to see achieved in 2015.
