Mali, West Africa Facility

In collaboration with the Malaria Research and Training Center at the University of Mali and the National Institutes of Health, the CVD has developed a field site in the Dogon Country of northeast Mali for testing malaria vaccines, supported by molecular biology and immunology laboratory facilities in Bamako.

This project builds on several years of CVD-Mali collaboration on studies of the molecular epidemiology of drug-resistant malaria, malaria pathogenesis and a trial of a live oral cholera vaccine.

In addition, with support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, the CVD is developing laboratories and a field site in Bamako, the capital city, in which epidemiological and intervention studies of infectious diseases, including measles among infants, will be performed.
