About the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases (APPMG) exists to provide a forum for Parliamentarians to be updated on; discuss the impact of; and progress in the fields of malaria and neglected tropical diseases. Meetings are held which give the opportunity for Parliamentarians to hear from experts in the fields of malaria control and neglected tropical diseases to understand how these diseases are affecting billions of people around the globe. The Group monitors developments and progress in control methods, looks at new research into drugs, diagnostic methods, vaccines and insecticides, hears about different countries control programmes, and new ideas and developments are explored.
The Group continues to invite the highest level of speakers to address the Group. Its primary audience is Parliamentarians but all those who are engaged in the work of controlling malaria and/or neglected tropical diseases and those interested in international development are welcome to participate in the meetings.
The APPMG meets regularly during the Parliamentary year, please check meeting times and dates in the events calendar.
The Group publishes an Annual Report every year based on the presentations that have been made to the Group.
