Malaria

As part of its multi-year survey of critical issues at the intersection of religion and development, the Berkley Center has held events and developed publications and web resources focused on malaria. In December 2008 the Berkley Center partnered with the Center for Inter-faith Action on Global Poverty to bring development leaders together for a consultation to assess the landscape of faith contributions on malaria, and to discuss possible ways forward towards greater faith involvement. The meeting led to the publication of a report, produced in partnership with the World Faiths Development Dialogue, that highlights the importance of malaria as an issue for religious communities throughout history and explores the current state of the epidemic and attempts to control it; its findings were later distilled into a policy brief.
