Malaria

BACKGROUND

Malaria Study Group has a collaboration research with Institute of Tropical Medicine, Nagasaki University, Japan since 1998, under Hiroji Kanbara, Haruki Uemura, and Yoes Prijatna Dachlan. We worked together, with Department of Health organs, to perform malaria control in West Lombok under Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) partnership grant, and malaria surveillance in several malaria endemic areas such as, Lunyuk, Pacitan, Indragiri Hilir, and Paser districts by JSPS grant. This research collaboration contributions on: one medical student research, 9 students research, 3 doctoral students research, 2 obst genecology residences and several molecular equipment Malaria laboratory in ITD, Universitas Airlangga. We have memorandum of understanding (MoA/MoU) betw Universitas Airlangga and Nagasaki University since 2004.
