World Malaria Day - Malaria drug resistance in Africa and Asia: Trends & metrics in antimicrobial resistance

Recent evidence of the emergence of Plasmodium falciparum strains showing reduced susceptibility to the front line artemisinin combination therapies (ACT) in Africa has highlighted the growing problem of antimalarial drug resistance.

This symposium, hosted jointly by London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine’s (LSHTM) Malaria Centre and Antimicrobial Resistance Centre, explores these issues from a range of disciplinary perspectives including molecular biology, clinical medicine, epidemiology, modelling, social sciences, policy and global control efforts.
