2016 VxWG & SRWG Meetings

The APMEN Vivax Working Group (VxWG) and Surveillance and Response Working Group (SRWG) hosted their annual meetings back-to-back on October 17-21 in Bali, Indonesia. 

Each working group hosted an annual meeting in addition to a half-day integrated meeting on cross-cutting themes related to case management, P. vivax, and surveillance and response. In attendance were 33 country partners representing 16 countries in the Asia Pacific and a range of the Network's Partner Institutions.   

The VxWG convened on October 17-18 and hosted sessions on radical cure and G6PD testing. The VxWG and SRWG integrated sessions focused on ultrasensitive diagnostics and areas for improved collaboration between the two working groups. The SRWG convened from October 19-21 and hosted sessions on the forthcoming WHO Malaria Elimination Operational Manual, foci identification and response, and rapid reporting technologies for malaria elimination.

Transition Update

We are pleased to announce the launch of the joint APMEN-APLMA Secretariat in it's new location in Singapore this month.   The transition of the APMEN Secretariat to it's new regional home also coincides with a change in Secretariat team who we look forward to introducing in the New Year.

The process of confirming available funding for the Network and the development of an APMEN Strategic Plan 2017 - 2020 is also currently in the final stages.  

We are also happy to announce the much anticipated launch of the new APMEN website.  The new-look website will provide visitors access to up-to-date Country resources, easy-to-find past meeting materials, information on current and future APMEN opportunities and progress on the regions' 2030 goal to eliminate malaria.
