The WHO estimations on the burden of malaria do not fully reflect the availability of new tools to fight the diseases nor the multiplicity of parasitological, epidemiology and treatment research- as well as the new thinking on financing- that have been taken place in the last decade. In fact 219 million cases of malaria occur every year around the world and 660.000 people still die – mainly in children under the age of 5. Moreover, it is evident that current funding levels do not allow for full implementation of the newest and most effective interventions globally: The Roll Back Malaria Partnership estimates that an annual funding gap of about $2.8 billion will need to be filled in order to to reduce its incidence by 75% and malaria deaths to zero by 2015.
This conference aims at understanding the scientific, economic and political implications behind the opportunities and hurdles to stop this killing disease and to achieve the Millennium Development Goals targets. This event has CPD accreditation.
