RSVP HERE BY DECEMBER 7TH

Despite decades of control efforts, malaria remains a life-threatening disease with pernicious effects on development. Please join NYU Africa House and the NYU College of Global Public Health for a panel discussion on “Malaria and Developmental Impacts” preceded by a presentation by Dr. Josselin Thuilliez on his paper “Disease and Human Capital Accumulation: Evidence from the Roll Back Malaria Partnership in Africa,” co-authored with Maria Kuecken and Marie-Anne Valfort. Our discussion will look at malaria campaigns, microeconomic data, impacts on household human capital production, infant mortality rates and fertility, labor supply, educational attainment, and large-scale public health efforts to reduce disease in Africa.

Following the presentation, Professor Yesim Tozan will moderate a panel discussion with Professors Jane Carlton, Chris Dickey, Yaw Nyarko, Gbenga Ogedegbe, and Josselin Thuilliez.
