Globally there has been a steady increase noted in malaria incidence from 211 million cases to 228 million cases in 2015 to 2018 respectively. The World Health Organization (WHO) has indicated that it appears as if malaria is busy fighting back against malaria control and elimination strategies. This results in more challenges allowing for more research collaboration opportunities to develop new, innovative and more sustainable malaria control tools and strategies.

The University of Pretoria Institute for Sustainable Malaria Control (UP ISMC) is a fully integrated, multi-disciplinary, trans-disciplinary and interfaculty initiative. The aim of the Institute is to coordinate and promote collaborative research on safer and sustainable malaria control and management strategies, and to generate new knowledge and support new activities pertaining to safe malaria control in Africa.
