This week, The Lancet Commission on Malaria Eradication published its report Malaria Eradication within a Generation: Ambitious, Achievable, and Necessary, which argues that it is still possible to eradicate malaria by 2050. The publication stresses the need for innovative tools to accelerate the fight against the disease, complementing the tools currently available. The report launch event, called Malaria Eradication Within a Generation, will be on September 12, in London. You can register for it here. The event will also be available for live stream from 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm (BST).
