About us

Following in the footsteps of the malaria Eradication Research Agenda (malERA) initiative, MESA advances the science of malaria eradication for impact through three principal functions:

  • Providing the community with a dedicated platform to drive an evidence-based approach to global malaria eradication.
  • Creating knowledge management tools to accelerate and expand the impact of the relevant evidence base.
  • Accelerating research, especially in areas relevant for policy makers and programmes.

Core principles guiding MESA's activities are:

  • Scientific rigor 
  • Innovation 
  • Inclusiveness
  • Transparency 
  • Agility

As an alliance, MESA works and collaborates with multiple actors in malaria elimination and eradiaction. Our alliance collaborators are listed here.
