The Center’s mission is to maximize the public health impact of malaria programs by applying innovative and interdisciplinary research tools to solve current and expected challenges in malaria elimination.
To improve malaria programs through applied population-based evaluation research that is interdisciplinary in its approach to building a robust evidence base to guide malaria control and elimination efforts in the most affected areas.
- To guide malaria program strategies through the measurement of malaria transmission, disease burden and associated risk factors
- To provide expertise in cutting-edge impact evaluation and operations research methods to improve malaria programs working towards elimination
- To implement applied research that guides the translation of efficacious interventions into effective malaria programs
- To strengthen the capacity of researchers from malaria endemic areas to carry out applied malaria research and evaluation
- To translate and apply lessons learned and tools developed in applied malaria research and evaluation to other disease settings and paradigms, such as those in child survival and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs)
