malERA – An updated research agenda for malaria elimination and eradication

Partnered Collections, Special Issues

‘malERA Refresh’ is a forward-looking research and development agenda that accelerates progress towards malaria elimination and global eradication. The malERA Refresh special collection comprises seven papers that address the scientific achievements and the current challenges in different fields. Together, the collection sets out a multi-disciplinary agenda for research, development and innovation. The outputs are the result of a consultative process with over 180 scientists, malaria programme managers and policy makers organized into six panels. Each panel was guided by a chair and co-chair(s) who worked with the Leadership Group that oversaw the process.
