Symposium on Malaria prevention and control in mobile and hard to reach populations
Paramaribo, April 6-8, 2022
Preparations are ongoing for an international symposium on the control and elimination of malaria in mobile and hard-to-reach populations.
The symposium is organized by the MoH Malaria Program with the Foundation for Scientific research in Suriname and the Centre Hospitalier de Cayenne, French Guiana.
The objectives of the meeting are to :
- share experiences and lessons learned from innovative approached to malaria control and prevention in mobile and hard to reach populations,
- share (preliminary) results from (ongoing) operational research projects or pilot studies on this topic,
- discuss the applicability of innovative strategies in different contexts, and
- develop a summary report of the meeting with an overview of strategies and the outcome of the discussion. This final document will then be disseminated and may serve as a basis for guidance development for malaria prevention and control in these challenging populations.
