The Malaria Network Web Site

Article excerpt A joint collaboration between the World Health Organization and the World Bank, maintained by the Department of Communicable Disease Prevention and Control, World Health Organization, Geneva.

* WHO publications and documents on malaria;

* news relevant to malaria-related issues (press releases, fact sheets, and epidemiological information);

* links to major malaria-related web sites and other sites relevant to malaria prevention and control;

* lists of upcoming conferences and seminars.
