Professor Randall Packard (John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore): Can we Eradicate Malaria? Lessons from the WHO Malaria Eradication Campaign of the 1950s and 60s

The talk examines the challenge of eradicating malaria by drawing lessons from the earlier WHO led Malaria Eradication Programme of the 1950s and 60s. It suggests that while current malaria control and elimination efforts differ in significant ways from those of the earlier campaign, there are some marked similarities, which raise questions about the feasibility of eradication as a strategy, particularly in Africa.
