On behalf of the MIM secretariat and the local organising committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 6th MIM Pan-African Malaria Conference.  The MIM conference is the largest gathering of the malaria community and therefore provides the ideal opportunity to showcase novel findings, innovations and ground breaking research.  Since the first MIM conference in Senegal 1997, the global face of malaria has changed considerably, with malaria elimination now a viable option in many African countries.  To highlight this paradigm shift, the conference is appropriately themed:  “Moving towards malaria elimination: Investing in research and control” and has both plenary sessions and symposia dedicated to this topic.

The conference will be held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in scenic Durban from the 6th to 11th October 2013.  As Durban is a popular tourist destination there is ample accommodation particularly along Durban’s newly re-vamped beachfront area, which is in close proximity to the ICC.  We look forward to welcoming you to the 6th MIM conference and Durban!
