MalariaWorld is a charitable project of the Dutch Malaria Foundation. Our newsletter and platform services are free of charge for all in need of it. Our charges for advertisement & donations are used to pay our dedicated staff.


“Advertising our meeting to the MalariaWorld subscribers was the most productive method of publicising the meeting when compared with leaflet mailing which we also carried out and selected journal advertising. In reality the MalariaWorld Newsletter route was virtually instantaneous in terms of responses and there was no comparison with our physical mailing - which often takes weeks and months to bear fruit. I will in future, as a first instance, always use MalariaWorld to publicise our future conference series events.” John Herriot, Meetings Management, Malaria Vaccines for the World, Conference Secretariat

At the moment you can still access most of the site's content without being logged in, but that will change. 

It is essential to us that you register with the platform. This is because we need to show to donors the number of people that have signed up. Without it, we will simply not be able to continue this free service for you. In future, you will only be able to access certain parts of the site if you are logged in. Takes a few seconds and makes a big difference for us...

It seems not important to log in to the platform, as all content can be read without doing so. However, you can only write something or comment on what you read if you log in. Without logging in, the platform will remain a one-way stream of information, which is what we hope to avoid. 

Second, you cannot read comments people make without logging in.

If you log in for the first time, most browsers (explorer, google chrome, etc.) will give you the ability to save your log-in name and password. If you do this, you will not have to re-type your name and password every time you log in. Simple, safe, and easy.



No - you will never have to pay anything for the information displayed on this site, nor for anything (comments, blogs, etc.) that you post. Advertising (like job announcements) will be charged €200,= (excl.). Contact for more information.


Our newsletter mailinglist is run by an automatic program that monitors messages being sent out. If it notices that messages are persistently failing to get through to a particular e-mail address, it will eventually purge that address from the list. It does this to stop flooding the net with useless messages that bounce between machines.

However occassionally messages fail to get through for reasons related to network traffic or changes by local e-mail administrators. If this happens, it may trigger the programs purge routine. Therefore you may be dropped from the list even though you still want to receive MW. If you no longer receive MW, just send a message to and we'll put you back on the list.

You can find the archived weekly newsletters from 2007-2009 here.

At MalariaWorld we scan hundreds of electronic Tables of Content (e-tocs) every month, to deliver to you the best service possible. However, from time to time, an article may slip our attention, particularly if it is published in a journal that not normally has malaria-related content.


If this happens, contact us (see 'About us' page for email details) and we will immediately put your article in our database and publish it in the next newsletter.


Yes, that's why the platform exists in the first place. We invite you to write blogs (or articles, whatever you wish to call contributions). This can be done at no cost. If you wish to draw attention to your work, a particular study or project, or even want support from others to solve technical issues, etc., feel free to write.  


We encourage both newcomers in the field of malaria as well as long-term professionals, to write about malaria.
