Africa Fighting Malaria is a non-profit health advocacy group founded in 2000 and based in South Africa. Our mission is to make malaria control more transparent, responsive and effective. We conduct research into the social and economic aspects of malaria and raise the profile of the disease and the issues surrounding its control in the local and international media. AFM strives to hold public institutions accountable for funding and implementing effective, integrated and country-driven malaria control policies and to promote successful private sector initiatives to control the disease.

The electronic conference for the 'African Networks for Health Research & Development' (AFRO-NETS) was established in 1997 to facilitate exchange of information among different networks active in Health Research for Development in Anglophone Africa, and to facilitate collaboration in the fields of capacity building, planning, and research.
The American Society for Microbiology is the oldest and largest single life science membership organization in the world. Membership has grown from 59 scientists in 1899 to more than 39,000 members today, with more than one third located outside the United States. The members represent 26 disciplines of microbiological specialization plus a division for microbiology educators.
The American Society of Parasitologists (ASP) is a diverse group of over 800 scientists from industry, government, and academia who are interested in the study and teaching of Parasitology. Founded in 1924, ASP members have contributed not only to the development of parasitology as a discipline, but also to primary research in systematics, medicine, molecular biology, immunology, physiology, ecology, biochemistry, behavior, and more.
ACTMalaria (Asian Collaborative Training Network for Malaria) is an inter-country training and communication network which includes National Malaria Control Programmes of Bangladesh, Cambodia, PR China, Republic of Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Timor Leste, and Vietnam.
The Australian Centre for International and Tropical Health (ACITH) is a teaching and research collaboration between The University of Queensland’s Faculty of Health Sciences (particularly the School of Population Health), and the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR).
Nunca é tarde demais para falarmos sobre o meio ambiente. O planeta em que vivemos possui uma biodiversidade incalculável, e que funciona a partir de um equilíbrio muito delicado. Qualquer mudança em uma região pode afetar não esta mesma área, mas inclusive áreas vizinhas que possuem interdependência com a mesma. O equilíbrio ambiental é de extrema importância, e o homem deve cuidar para que, caso haja mudanças neste equilíbrio, que não seja ele o responsável. O bioma mais rico da Terra, com maior biodiversidade é o de florestas tropicais. O grande e estável volume de água ao longo do ano inteiro, assim como a temperatura média anual elevada, proporciona um ambiente muito próspero para a reprodução de espécies animais e vegetais. São várias regiões da Terra a apresentarem o bioma de Floresta Tropical, dentre eles estão a América do Sul, a África, a Ásia, a Austrália e a América Central.
Our foundation is teaming up with partners around the world to take on some tough challenges: extreme poverty and poor health in developing countries, and the failures of America’s education system. We focus on only a few issues because we think that’s the best way to have great impact, and we focus on these issues in particular because we think they are the biggest barriers that prevent people from making the most of their lives.
Bill Gates and Melinda French were raised knowing it’s important to give back to the community.
“Both the Gates and French families instilled the values of volunteerism and civic engagement. Our families believed that if life happens to bless you, you should use those gifts as well and as wisely as you can.”
It promotes and supports the academic study of parasitology in all its many guises. This can be from experimental to theoretical approaches as applied to infection biology and disease research or from ecological to medical & veterinary studies in global health and international aid. Each year students are given financial support to attend BSP meetings and scholarship schemes are in place to support fieldwork and training events.
COHRED is an international non-governmental organization whose primary objective is to strengthen research for health and innovation systems, with a focus on low- and middle-income countries. COHRED supports countries to use research for health and innovation
USAID's Environmental Health Team sponors projects and provides financial support to selected governmental and international organizations to conduct programs and research on environmental health issues.
The EUROMALVAC2 consortium will develop malaria vaccines inducing protective antibody responses to P.falciparum bloodstage antigens, moving leading vaccine candidates towards GMP-production and clinical trial whilst validating 2nd and 3rd generation candidates in its malaria vaccine R&D 'pipeline '. The major projects within the EUROMALVAC2 work programme involve; a. Optimisation of synthesis of lead candidate malaria vaccines based on merozoite surface protein 1 (MSPl) and the apical merozoite antigen 1 (AMAl). b. Production and testing of more parasitised erythrocyte membrane protein (PfEMP-l) based vaccines. c. Production and testing of new vaccine formulations based on the N-terminal Block 2 sequences of MSP1 and on other, less well characterised merozoite antigens. d. Development of a transmission blocking vaccine based on gametocyte antigen Pfs48/45. e. Strengthening of preclinical and clinical testing facilities.
The European Molecular Biology Laboratory is an intergovernmental organisation specialising in basic research in the life sciences with 21 member states, one prospect and two associate member states.
FMVCC’s mission is to contribute to the global effort to control malaria and to prevent malaria in U.S. citizens traveling in endemic areas through malaria vaccine development.
The Federation of African Immunological Societies bridges immunology societies from African countries. The activities of FAIS are intended to complement those of other similar organisations. Any Africa-based country's immunological society may join. Currently, Cameroon, Congo, Egypt, The Gambia, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Tunisia and Zimbabwe are represented in FAIS. The FAIS constitution is undergoing amendments. Advancing the field of immunology on the African continent.To enhance communication between, and education of, Africa-based immunologists. To promote research, clinical and animal care, and advocacy efforts that impact immune system-related morbidity and mortality.
Founded in 1912, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) was originally created by three independent scientific organizations to provide a forum in which to hold educational meetings, develop publications, and disseminate biological research results. What started as a small group of dedicated scientists has grown to be the nation’s largest coalition of biomedical researchers, representing 26 scientific societies and over 115,000 researchers from around the world. FASEB is now recognized as the policy voice of biological and biomedical researchers.
FASEB's Mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
FEBS is a charitable organization supporting research and education in molecular life sciences through its journals, fellowships, courses, congress and other activities – and it brings together the thousands of members of national biochemistry and molecular biology societies in Europe and neighbouring regions
The Fogarty International Center is dedicated to advancing the mission of the National Institutes of Health by supporting and facilitating global health research conducted by U.S. and international investigators, building partnerships between health research institutions in the U.S. and abroad, and training the next generation of scientists to address global health needs.
