For the first time, MESA will virtually celebrate a series of monthly discussions, the MESA Webinars: Science for Malaria Impact. These webinars bring together the malaria community of innovators and showcase the work of malaria-endemic researchers. Starting in May, the virtual events will be held on the first Wednesday of each month and will feature two researchers. These one-hour sessions will cover a range of topics, from social sciences to entomology, through insecticide drug resistance, stratification and genomics.

When: First Wednesday of each month until December
