Sara Canavati


APMEN Secretariat 2015-06-12 06:30 Sara is a champion promoter of malaria elimination activities in the Asia Pacific region, and particularly her project work in Cambodia with Clinical Tropical Medicine Research, Mahidol-Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit. Sara regularly shares her own and other colleagues photos and tweets that relay the message of 'a malaria-free Asia Pacific by 2030'. She is a great example of when technical expertise combines with advocacy for malaria elimination. Deserving of a follow! #MFAP2030 I am also a co-administrator of the Facebook page of the World Federation of Parasitologists, along with Christopher Haggarty-Weir, where I share new knowledge on malaria issues. Kindly feel free to visit the Facebook page at: In my ten years working in South East Asia, I have also try very hard to connect my colleagues to the existing sources on advocacy of malaria (especially Facebook and Twitter). I have personally invited my colleagues to the Facebook pages and twitter accounts "ISGLOBAL - Barcelona Institute for Global Health", "The Shoklo Malaria Research Unit", "Asia Pacific Leaders Malaria Alliance - APLMA", and the "APMEN". Several hundreds of my colleagues have liked and follow these pages and they say they have been greatly benefited from it. I have also added email lists from out Cambodian Research Consortium to the Malaria Elimination Initiative/Global Health Group, University of California, San Francisco updates on innovative tools for malaria elimination. These are only brief examples of what I have done . Most importantly, I have used my own Facebook page to advocate for malaria elimination and share the latests updates in the region. Most of my friends are colleagues working in malaria in the Asia Pacific. Many say that my Facebook page acts as a closed group for all of us in the Asia Pacific working in malaria to share resources relevant to our field. I have my twitter and Facebook accounts linked as well so everything I twit it also goes to my Facebook page. I strongly believe that malaria advocacy is crucial for malaria elimination- the most important parasitic disease of humans.

As I know Sara, is good and hard at works. Sara has used her personal Facebook page as a malaria advocacy tool. She has also invited me to join other Facebook pages that have very relevant content to that of malaria . Just taking a look at her page it offers enormous amount of malaria related information. She deserves this award.

I would like to commend Sara for her efforts in advocacy in malaria elimination. She makes the effort to share with all colleges and friends through her Facebook page all updates on malaria. I always open my Facebook to find the latest updates that Sara posts every day. She is also very good at connecting people with different existing social networks.
