Joint Statement of the malERA Leadership Council on the Malaria Eradication Research and Development Agenda Published in PLoS Medicine | Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

We welcome the publication of a new multidisciplinary research and development agenda for eradicating malaria, a goal that is unachievable without a new generation of tools and strategies.

BARCELONA, Spain -- We welcome the publication of a new multidisciplinary research and development agenda for eradicating malaria, a goal that is unachievable without a new generation of tools and strategies. We were pleased to be active participants in the preparation of this new agenda, which resulted from a two-year consultative process involving more than 250 scientists convened by the Malaria Eradication Research Agenda (malERA) initiative. MalERA has identified important knowledge gaps that must be addressed and new interventions that will be needed to achieve a key goal of public health and development communities: the interruption of malaria transmission worldwide.
