Impactful malaria science, and the trailblazers leading the fight. A podcast from the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute.

Feb 27, 2024

Until recently, health workers were the only means to prevent and treat malaria in Odisha, India. In 2017, the state government tried a new strategy: pooling health resources into regional ‘malaria camps’. 

In this podcast, we ask:

  • What is the current state of malaria in Odisha, India?
  • What challenges does Odisha face in malaria control, especially in hard-to-reach areas?
  • What inspired the Odisha government to introduce the concept of malaria camps?
  • What makes this approach encouraging and potentially translatable to regions with higher malaria endemicity, such as Africa?

With Praveen Sahu, Senior Researcher in Molecular Biology and Infectious Diseases, and Jane Carlton, Director of the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute. and Jane Carlton.
