The Malaria Eradication Research Agenda (malERA) initiative complements existing research agendas, which are primarily aimed at reducing the global burden of morbidity and mortality due to malaria by malaria control, with a set of research and development priorities that identify knowledge gaps and tools needed for worldwide eradication of malaria. Over the course of two years, more than 250 experts from 36 countries participated in 20 malERA meetings around the world, producing a draft research and development agenda that was refined during the malERA "Zenith Week" meeting in Washington D.C., in March, 2010. This sponsored Collection of 12 Reviews comprises three reflective pieces and nine research and development agendas that arose from these consultations.

Produced with support from the Malaria Eradication Research Agenda (malERA) initiative, which was funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The PLoS Medicine editors have sole editorial responsibility for the content of this collection.
