Target Malaria and the Kenya Medical Research Institute have convened this workshop to examine issues related to consent and community acceptance in the development of gene drive technologies in African contexts. It is intended to provide direction and recommendations to Target Malaria as it enters its next phase of work.

PLEASE SEE THE "CONTEXT & INTRODUCTION" TOPIC FOR FURTHER DETAILS AND INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO PARTICIPATE.
