Training Centres

GMP established 4 centres, GMC in Ghana, MAC in Malawi, CEEMI in Tanzania and CIAM in The Gambia, to act as intermediaries between the research community and the National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP) in each country.

CIAM Public Health Research and Development Centre in the Gambia
CIAM – Public Health Research and Development Centre
in The Gambia, is now an independent NGO. They have retained a closed working relationship in several specific research areas with the MRC and look forward to maintaining this important and valuable partnership in the long-term.


Malaria Alert Centre (MAC) Malawi The Malaria Alert Centre (MAC) is now affiliated to the College of Medicine, Blantyre, Malawi.

MAC and CIAM have both expanded their activities beyond malaria to involve other infectious diseases, such as HIV, and are undertaking operational research, training and consultancies supported by a number of government and non-government agencies. Both continue to provide valued advice and support to their national malaria control programs.


Centre for the Evaluation of Effective Malaria Interventions (CEEMI) in Tanzania
The Centre for the Evaluation of Effective Malaria Interventions (CEEMI) in Tanzania has been incorporated into the NIMR. Construction of a building on the NIMR site in Dar-es-Salaam, to host both the NIMR staff concerned with the implementation of malaria control in Tanzania and the NMCP, with funds provided by GMP has facilitated interactions between these two organisations.
