Title: Workshop- Modern Drugs and Traditional Treatments For Equitable And Sustainable Malaria Control
How do malaria endemic countries cope with the challenges of appropriately managing uncomplicated malaria, severe cases and malaria in pregnancy? How can phytomedicines contribute to improve the management of the disease? “Anti-parasite” or “pro-host” treatments, which way to go? Applying a gender equity lens, key to sustainable malaria control?Are medicinal plants, medicines of the poor or “green gold” for economic development? These are some of the challenging issues that will be discussed at the training workshop. The training workshop will rely upon the expertise of lecturers and facilitators from malaria research institutions of different endemic countries (Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Mali, Cameroon and Kenya), WHO-TDR, the Italian Malaria Network, UNICAM and European research institutions. It will be organized in state-of–the-art lectures, key issue and country case presentations, plenary discussions, working group sessions and round table discussions.
Target: Doctoral candidates – whatever the disciplinary background – working in the field of malaria or who plan to be involved in malaria and health research in their future.
