Governance & People

WWARN brings together a broad range of expertise from across the global research community.


Our core team is comprised of a Secretariat, five Scientific Groups and four Regional Hubs in Asia, Africa and Latin America.The network is connected to the broader research community through our Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) and the Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs). Each Scientific Group has a Technical Advisory Committee to support and guide their work and research findings.

Our programmes and activities are governed by a Board of Directors. Members are drawn from malaria endemic regions, academia and the public health sector, and are selected based on their international standing and expertise.

WWARN’s Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) advises on all technical and research activities. Appointed from across the malaria and broader scientific research community, SAC members have significant expertise in the discipline of each of WWARN’s Scientific Groups.

The Board and SAC meet at least twice per year to provide guidance on our strategic direction and the operational goals of our Network.
