The 2018 VxWG Annual Meeting 2018 was held in Bangkok, Thailand. This year’s meeting was hosted back to back with the APMEN Vector Working Group (VCWG) and APMEN Surveillance Working Group (SRWG) Annual Meeting.

The 2018 Annual Meeting drew more than 90 participants representing 18 APMEN Country Partners and Partner Institutions, along with active participation from other observers in attendance. The Vivax working group meeting brought together key stakeholders from National Malaria Control Programs, policy makers, healthcare providers, academics, funders and the World Health Organisation to work together to generate solutions to overcome a parasite with a known ability to evade its demise and to highlight and share progress and lessons learned on vivax malaria and the challenges on the path towards elimination.
