Tune into Malaria Consortium’s 10th anniversary symposium, live from London, on Tuesday 25th February 2014 as we reflect on the achievements of a decade of working in communicable disease control and child health and look ahead at the emerging issues in malaria, neglected tropical diseases, and childhood illnesses. We will be streaming the keynote presentations and subsequent panel discussions for viewers around the world to watch here. You can join the discussion on Twitter, using the hashtag #MC10, where you can also submit a question ahead of the event and get involved in the debate.

In the past 10 years, we have witnessed remarkable gains, particularly in malaria control, but also for neglected tropical diseases and other childhood illnesses. However, we are now at a crossroads for global health, with targets still to be reached for the Millennium Development Goals, and the post-2015 development framework yet to be finalised. This event will serve to outline the priorities and gaps moving forward for all development partners to consider and act upon.
