A Point-CounterPoint Discussion: Malaria Eradication Within a Generation?

Location: Kresge, Room G2, Harvard Chan

Malaria is one of the oldest and deadliest afflictions of humankind. The Lancet Commission on Malaria Eradication posits malaria eradication can be done by 2050 or sooner with specific measures in the areas of software, hardware, finance, and leadership/accountability. The report findings are in contrast to the recently released Executive Summary of the WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Malaria Eradication, which did not call for an eradication goal or timeline.
