Working together

As part of the IDDO platform, WWARN works in partnership with multiple organisations to share knowledge, expertise and understanding on the efficacy of malaria drugs.


Collaborator network

We collaborate with over 282 research institutes and organisations from across the world.

Study groups

The WWARN network encourages our research partners to undertake individual patient data meta-analyses to answer specific research questions about malaria drug resistance. Join one of our Study Groups
Malaria in Pregnancy Treatment Efficacy Study Group

Assessing the efficacy of a range of antimalarials used for the treatment of P. falciparum malaria in all trimesters of pregnancy in Africa and Asia
The MiP Treatment Efficacy Study Group was formed in July 2016, with a call to interested researchers with relevant data sets.

Correlation between K13 mutations and clinical phenotype Study Group

A pooled analysis on the relationship between K13 molecular marker and parasite clearance data.  The Study Group has been reopened in March 2023, with an objective to update repository with recent studies and rerun the analysis on the updated dataset. In the last few years several studies which identified a number of low frequency K13- propeller mutations and few reports of artemisinin resistance have been published in Africa.  Systematic review was conducted to identified relevant studies (PROSPERO CRD42019133366, WWARN Clinical Trials Library).

ACT Malaria and Malnutrition Study Group

A pooled analysis that assessed the effect of various nutritional indicators in treatment outcome in children aged 6-59 months treated with artemisinin based combination therapies for uncomplicated P. falciparum malaria.
This group has published a first manuscript: Complex interactions between malaria and malnutrition: a systematic literature review. Das D et al. BMC Medicine. 2018 Oct 29;16(1):186. Read this news article summarising the results.

Scientific groups

Our Scientific Groups work collaboratively to explore the multiple research areas of antimalarial drug resistance and drug efficacy. Learn more about our Clinical, Malaria in Pregnancy, In vitro, Pharmacology, Molecular and Medicine Quality groups.

Sharing and pooling data is supporting global efforts to curb the spread of malaria drug resistance. See examples of our data sharing tools, and how you can benefit from joining our data sharing efforts.

Partnerships play a critical role in WWARN’s efforts to combat antimalarial drug resistance. Find out more about the international research projects we are supporting.
