P.falciparum Genome Sequencing Consortium
The P.falciparum Genome Sequencing Consortium is a collaboration among 3 sequencing centres: The Sanger Centre (U.K.), The Institute for Genomic Research/Naval Medical Research Institute (U.S.A.), and Stanford University (U.S.A.). Look for progress reports, news, and meeting information, and many useful links.
 

Mapping Malaria Risk in Africa
The MARA/ARMA collaboration was initiated to provide an Atlas of malaria for Africa. MARA/ARMA provides a great number of maps that are based on Remote Sensing.

Malaria Vaccine Initiative (MVI)
The MVI was created through a grant of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to PATH (Program for Appropriate Technology in Health). The objective of the MVI will be to significantly accelerate the clinical development of promising malaria vaccine candidates. The MVI is expected to lead to field trials of one or more vaccine candidates; coordinate its efforts with malaria vaccine programs at various organizations and agencies; and identify gaps in current research efforts and apply resources to advance promising malaria vaccine candidates.
 

ACTMalaria - Asia
The Asian Collaborative Training Network for Malaria (ACTMalaria) is an intercountry initiative between Bangladesh, Cambodia, China (Yunnan Province), Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam:
1) To collect, develop, and disseminate training materials and to implement practical training courses to meet the needs of malaria control programs in southeast Asia and the Mekong valley.
2) To improve communication between these countries on malaria control problems affecting their common borders.

Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV)
WHO's new MMV is a joint public-private sector initiative which aims to develop antimalarial drugs and drug combinations for distribution in poor countries.
 

Regional Malaria Control Programme in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam

This is a European Community Regional Malaria Control Programme.

Roll Back Malaria (RBM) Partnership
The RBM initiative was announced by WHO in May 1998. It is a global strategy to improve health systems with the goal of a 50% reduction in malaria deaths by 2010. This will be achieved by:
*increasing speedy access for people to effective treatment and means of protection from mosquito bites
*enabling national authorities and non-governmental organizations to combat malaria intensifying efforts
*developing new products for the prevention and treatment of malaria.
 

African Malaria Vaccine Testing Network
(AMVTN)

The AMVTN is a non-profit network established in 1995 in Arusha, Tanzania. Its objective is to provide a forum for scientists and policy makers involved in the planning, coordination, and execution of malaria vaccination trials in Africa.

Multilateral Initiative on Malaria (MIM)
The MIM is an alliance of organisations & individuals concerned with malaria. It aims to maximise the impact of scientific research against malaria in Africa, by facilitating global collaboration & coordination.
