ASMQ Meeting

[December 1st, 2011]
Rio de Janeiro



The meeting “Artesunate-Mefloquine (ASMQ) Fixed-Dose Combination (FDC), an additional tool in the armamentarium to control malaria in Latin-America” was held in parallel with DNDi‘s annual partners’ meeting in Rio de Janeiro.

To address main challenges for improving access of ACT in general, and specifically of ASMQ FDC, DNDi organized a brainstorming session on December 1st, 2011, with key malaria stakeholders across the private and public sectors in Latin America. The goal was to analyze specific obstacles to the deployment and effective surveillance of ACTs and provide recommendations which also apply to the rest of the tools needed for malaria control.
