“Despite Australia being declared malaria-free since 1980, malaria remains a major public health risk in tropical regions globally.  The Minister notes the importance of the Global Technical Strategy for Malaria 2016-2030, endorsed by the World Health Organization, that sets attainable goals for lowering the global malaria burden.  Furthermore, the Minister recognises that the 1st Malaria World Congress represents a valuable opportunity to further progress global malaria control initiatives.  Minister Miles also recognises the important contribution to malaria control of the many research initiatives currently being undertaken by Queensland research institutes and wishes the organising committee of the 1st Malaria World Congress success with this important endeavour.”
