Join PMI Impact Malaria at ASTMH 2021

PMI Impact Malaria looks forward to participating in the 70th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH), from November 17-21. This year, we are proud to present 26 presentations highlighting the innovations, strategies, and lessons learned generated by PMI Impact Malaria (IM), the flagship global service delivery project of the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative.

IM's presentations cover a broad range of fascinating topics, from expanding Seasonal Malaria Chemoprevention to children under 10 in Mali, to a cross-country analysis on the role of gender determinants in malaria in pregnancy service uptake. See below for a full list of IM events and follow @Impact_Malaria on Twitter for updates.
