Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $190,000 to the University of California, San Diego to support Professor Omar Akbari and two collaborators at UC Berkeley and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. They will model the costs and benefits of implementing Professor Akbari’s pgSIT method to suppress transmission of malaria in peri-urban areas of Africa.

This falls within our focus area of scientific research, specifically within our interest in advancing human health and wellbeing.
