Mission is to facilitate the development and implementation of solutions
health, economic, and social problems caused by malaria.
This new section of the MFI
site is under development!
In the near future, we will provide information enhanced with images. The
initial information that will be presented will enable you to "Learn
About Vectors", "Learn About Control", and "Learn About
Vector Breeding Sites".
The MFI will continue to develop and add to this section of information.
The first MFI Business Leadership conference was hosted by Emory University on 6 Dec 2005.
