Today on Capitol Hill: The Malaria Forum
Date:4/21/2009

- Interdisciplinary team of experts joins forces to discuss the latest tools to combat this preventable but deadly disease -

Since its founding in 2003, DNDi has already developed and made available two antimalarial medicines while reaching out in partnership to those in the remotest areas in Africa as well as the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world.
