Malaria Policy Advisory Committee

The Malaria Policy Advisory Committee (MPAC) was established in 2011 to provide independent strategic advice to WHO on developing policy recommendations on malaria control and elimination. The MPAC brings together some of the world’s foremost experts on malaria, and convenes twice a year in Geneva. The Committee is supported by Technical Expert Groups and Evidence Review Groups, whose work focuses on specific thematic areas.
