Join PMI Impact Malaria at the 2020 ASTMH Annual Meeting

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.
