Malaria day of the Americas 2009

I get a lot of emails about malaria and other global health events. Here’s a recent one that may be of some interest to those living near Washington, DC:

Malaria in the America Forum 2009:
“Counting Malaria Out” towards the 2010 targets and the UN Millennium Development Goals.

Friday, November 6, 2009
1:00pm – 4:30pm
Room B, Pan American Health Organization
525 Twenty-Third Street, NW
Washington D.C.

The Pan American Health Organization, the Pan American Health and Education Foundation and the Center for Global Health at the George Washington University in the 2009 commemoration forum for Malaria Day in the Americas on November 6, 2009 (Friday). We welcome you to take part in an engaging discussion which will highlight the progress of efforts towards achieving global goals and national targets on malaria prevention and control, the challenges of malaria elimination, and resolving various issues on malaria work with mobile populations.

Another reason this caught my eye  is I have an old malaria day of the America’s shirt from Guyana. The motto is quite a mouthful! Speaking of mobile populations and Guyana, Bill Brieger at Malaria Free Future has excellently covered both recently.
