“This project will improve malaria prevention strategies for both children, pregnant women and families as a whole as the study is being conducted in families which will raise awareness of malaria prevention. Furthermore, the proposed strategy can reduce the high risk estimated by the WHO that deaths from malaria double as a result of the interruption of interventions due to the Covid-19 pandemic “, are the words of the evaluators appointed by the European Commission (EDCTP) to examine the INTEGRATION project proposal.
Trusting in a positive outcome, the consortium of African and European researchers who developed the project proposal (Mali, Burkina Faso, France, U.K. and Italy) is now committed to providing further information and clarification to the assessors, who will complete the evaluation in January 2021.
