5th Pan-African Malaria Conference, Nov 1-6 Nairobi

The Multilateral Initiative on Malaria conference is the largest scientific gathering for malaria with more than 2,000 attendees. The conference has a blog for the press but Tropika is the site to watch with initiatives like researcher interviews and day by day coverage. Actually, this is the first time I have seen scientific event reporting that is  accessible to the general public and innovative in its content. The usual fare consists of “advertisement” press releases  echoed around the web and in print by an uncritical press corps. More to come as news emerges.  (Thanks to Kanya)
