About Us

The Severe Malaria Observatory (SMO) is populated with information made available by the global malaria community. By sharing information on the SMO, you are contributing to the deepening of knowledge on severe malaria globally.

Mission and vision

Our mission: To create an open, accessible, knowledge-sharing platform that acts as a repository of information and resources for the severe malaria community and allows the sharing of experiences and best practices in this field of work.

Our vision: A world in which severe malaria case management is significantly improved by freely available information and open access to resources so that no child has to suffer from this fatal disease.

If you have information to contribute to the SMO, please use our webform.



The SMO is currently housed and maintained by Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV) as an extension of its work with partners on severe malaria.
