Scientists from all over the world identify the research and development needs to eradicate malaria

The Journal PLoS Medicine has published a monograph of 12 articles which outline the main conclusions of the Malaria Eradication Research Agenda (malERA) initiative.  This consultative process over a 2 year period has involved more than 250 scientists from all over the world with the aim of establishing a research and development agenda for the global eradication of malaria.  The agenda does not prescribe specific activities, but proposes a communal vision between institutions and financial bodies with respect to the future of research and development related to malaria, with its eradication being the final aim.
