The US President’s Malaria Initiative has been supporting the development of laboratory expertise in detection and monitoring of antimalarial drug resistance markers in Tanzania since 2016. This work started by building the capacity of two National Institute for Medical Research Tanga Centre (NIMR Tanga) staff by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on molecular analyses of therapeutic efficacy study (TES) samples in 2016.
