Bay Area World Malaria Day Annual Symposium
What is the Bay Area World Malaria Day Symposium?
During the 2007 World Health Assembly, the WHO member states instituted “World Malaria Day” (WMD) as April 25th of every year. The goal of World Malaria Day is to reinvigorate global efforts and commitments to fight and ultimately eliminate malaria completely.
While efforts are being undertaken around the world, the California Bay Area is uniquely situated in a hub of malaria research and expertise. With the help of co-sponsors, Zagaya hosts the Bay Area World Malaria Day Annual Symposium to highlight the contributions of local scientists, non-profit organizations, and other malaria experts towards the goal of malaria eradication. The goal of this event is to not only promote the work of Bay Area professionals; but to also provide a forum for collaboration, idea sharing, and networking among all those with a vested interest in solving one
of the world’s biggest burdens. Malaria is preventable and treatable, and the Bay Area World Malaria Day Symposium serves to facilitate its elimination.
The 2015 Bay Area World Malaria Day Symposium was the fourth annual event and was held at the Clark Kerr Campus in Berkeley, CA. Visit the 2015 conference page for highlights of our most recent symposium.
