Malaria Essay Contest
We seek your contribution to a novel initiative aimed at attracting attention to malaria as the persistent killer
it is by collecting short essays (details) from individuals with a variety of backgrounds. Selected essays will comprise the "Forum" section of a book to be published by Springer (book preface); other essays will be posted to this website. Once the Malaria Book is published, new essay submissions will be posted on the MFI website on a monthly basis. We look forward to hearing from students and professionals from many disciplines.
