Malaria elimination strategy

The Malaria Centre at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine houses the largest number of malaria researchers, students and support staff in Europe. Their mission is to make a significant contribution to international efforts to reduce the burden of malaria by improving the quality and use of evidence for malaria control and elimination efforts and policy decision-making at national and international levels through the development, application and dissemination of high quality research and teaching.

Their aim is to support, co-ordinate and promote high-quality malaria research and teaching by fostering collaboration both within the School and externally by building on the individual strengths of research groups and integrating research across various disciplines from basic science to applied research.

They do this by:

  • improving the quality of research by encouraging the development of links between malaria researchers of different disciplines based at the school (and externally, particularly in malaria endemic areas) in order to promote mixed and interdisciplinary methods of working;
  • disseminating research findings and promoting malaria R&D globally;
  • and coordinating malaria teaching at the School
