1st Malaria World Congress

1-5 July 2018

Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Center, Australia


Malaria is without doubt one of the world’s leading health problems causing death and severe illness to millions each year at a scale that entrenches poverty and disadvantage in major swathes of the world. Despite impressive advances over the last decade, malaria remains a huge global and regional threat. The recently released WHO 2017 World Malaria Report is a salutary reminder that we are indeed at a tipping point which could go either way.

At present, there is no mechanism anywhere in the world for ALL stakeholders - those in affected communities, in government, in policy development, in implementation, in program finance, and in research - to gather and share information, to reach a consensus and to build a solid framework for collaborative action against malaria.

The inaugural Malaria World Congress aims to address this gap.
