This ePanel, filmed during the Keystone Symposia Conference: The Malaria Endgame: Innovation in Therapeutics, Vector Control and Public Health Tools at Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, features field leaders Gordon Awandare, Lilian M. Ang’ang’o, Lemu Golassa and Fitsum G. Tadesse as they discuss the current state of the field, and future directions and challenges in the fight to eliminate malaria from endemic countries.

Topics will include:

  • Current state of vaccines
  • Impact of co-infections in Africa
  • Genetically modified mosquitos—benefits, risks and community engagement challenges
  • The disconnect between research and malaria control programs
  • ...and more!

Panelists will conclude with their suggested “one innovation” to eliminate malaria. In addition, they will share insights into their career path and personal experiences fighting malaria infection, with tips for junior researchers aspiring to enter the field and make a difference against this global health threat.
