(MRC) of South Africa.
Malaria Research was first started at the MRC Research Institute for Diseases in a Tropical Environment in Durban in 1980. The Malaria Research Unit (initially known as the National Malaria Research Programme ) was established in 1992. The programme extended the initial focus from malaria vector research to insecticide evaluations and research on the malaria parasite, including drug resistance in malaria.
