Why We Convene

The Isdell:Flowers Cross Border Malaria Initiative convenes malaria partners and advocates, Ministry of Health representatives, scientists, and implementers to share updates and best practices to accelerate malaria elimination in Southern Africa. Our annual Round Table meeting highlights the importance of community engagement and leadership in malaria elimination, and provides a platform for community experts, scientific experts, and program design experts to exchange ideas and experiences.
