LSTM to lead $30 million research program into malaria in pregnancy
Date:3/7/2008

hat reduce the risk of mosquito bites (eg insecticide treated bednets), thus preventing malaria in pregnancy.

  • Evaluate new interventions for the control of malaria in pregnancy in low transmission regions outside of Africa.

Coverage and utilisation

  • Establish the best way to increase the coverage and utilisation of existing strategies to control malaria in pregnancy.

Consortium leader Dr Feiko ter Kuile explained: In contrast to the recent focus on preventing malaria deaths in young children, the impact of malaria in pregnancy has until now been a relatively neglected area of research. This grant provides researchers from all over the world with the opportunity to conduct a much expanded and much needed research programme that is focussed on this other high risk group.

There are four main research theme areas consisting of ten major projects. The work is conducted jointly by expert institutions from all over the world that have agreed to use standardized methods and share information. This consortium approach generates a new momentum of life-saving research, which will provide evidence-based policy changes in the shortest possible time.

Defeating malaria will require new and better tools to prevent and treat the disease in pregnancy, said Dr Regina Rabinovich, director of Infectious Diseases Development at the Gates Foundation. By undertaking this important research, Liverpool and its partners will help bring the world closer to the ultimate goal of malaria eradication.
