The main objective of this workshop is to discuss the ‘state of play’ of antimalarial drug resistance in the Southeast Asia region and identify priority areas for research and intervention. In addition, the workshop will provide a platform for countries to share knowledge and successful approaches on how to tackle the challenge of drug resistance. To achieve this, our aims are as follows:
- Bring together evidence from all countries in the region on the current state of play of antimalarial drug resistance.
- Identify country/region specific and shared research challenges and barriers to managing drug resistance.
- Provide a platform for different countries to share their research experiences, challenges and successes to allow countries to learn from one another.
- Agree on a list of research priorities and solutions to overcome the identified barriers, which can be addressed on a regional level.
