MRC Director speaks at the Asia-Pacific launch of the Lancet Commission on Malaria Eradication.
Professor Balbir Singh, the founding director of the Malaria Research Centre, UNIMAS, spoke at the Asia-Pacific launch of The Lancet Commission on Malaria Eradication held at the National University of Singapore on 8th October 2019. Professor Balbir Singh, together with 40 other world leading malariologists, biomedical scientists, economists, and health policy experts, authored the The Lancet Commission’s seminal report, entitled 'Malaria eradication within a generation: ambitious, achievable and necessary.' The report synthesized existing evidence with new analyses to demonstrate that with the right tools, strategies and sufficient funding, malaria eradication worldwide can be achieved as early as 2050.
