Malaria is present in many regions of the world, with the greatest burden in sub-Saharan Africa.

This area is where around 95% of all malaria-related deaths occur, and where domestic resources are least available to fight the disease.
Target Malaria’s work focuses only on the mosquitoes that are the primary vector for malaria in this region. We are currently actively working in Burkina Faso, Ghana and Uganda.

Target Malaria’s work in Burkina Faso is led by the Institut de Recherche en Sciences de la Santé (IRSS), based in Bobo-Dioulasso and is headed by Prof. Abdoulaye Diabate.

Target Malaria’s work in Ghana is led by the University of Ghana, based in Accra and is headed by Dr. Fred Aboagye-Antwi.

Target Malaria’s work in Uganda is led by the Uganda Virus Research Institute (UVRI), based in Entebbe and is headed by Dr. Jonathan Kayondo.
