PMI Impact Malaria looks forward to participating in the 69th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH), from November 15-19. In a moment when it is particularly essential to maintain malaria gains under the many challenges imposed by COVID-19, this year’s meeting is an opportunity to share some of PMI Impact Malaria’s (IM) latest research.
In the most unique ASTMH Annual Meeting ever, IM will convene a symposium collaboration, give two oral presentations, and showcase four posters on lessons learned from the rollout of supportive supervision, a new internship program, remote mentoring, and more. See below for a list of IM events.
