LONDON-- A group of major biomedical research funding organizations and malaria researchers from around the world agreed last week on the outlines of a global initiative on malaria research. The initiative, a loose-knit collection of projects that will be run by individual agencies, will be focused on Africa, where 90% of the world's malaria cases occur. Its major objective will be to strengthen research in Africa itself and to build new ties between research institutions on the continent.
