The Malaria Institute at Macha (MIAM) is a joint collaborative effort - to develop a center of excellence in rural Zambia that will carry out state-of-the-art malaria research - including molecular biology, entomology, epidemiology and clinical studies.
The partners involved in this effort are the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; Macha Malaria Research Institute (MMRI), which is a US-based non profit organization; Macha Mission Hospital in southern Zambia; and the Zambian government through its Ministry of Health.
Our vision is that some day malaria will no longer cause such a heavy burden of suffering and death in children living in this part of Africa.
Phil Thuma, Director.
