The Center for Global Infectious and Parasitic Diseases works to advance progress toward control and, where possible, elimination of infectious diseases. Within the Center, the Malaria Elimination Initiative works to accelerate local and global malaria elimination and eradication efforts through research, capacity development, technical assistance, and consensus building. The Center for Global Infectious and Parasitic Diseases also focuses on the control of visceral leishmaniasis, Chagas disease, and other neglected tropical diseases.
