Ring-Stage Survival Assay (RSA) is an important tool in the surveillance and monitoring of antimalarial resistance developed by researchers at WWARN and the Institut Pasteur. Recently, the team held a training course in Cambodia to give researchers the skills and capacity needed to use this tool effectively.

Dr Naomi Lucchi, Associate Service Fellow, Malaria Branch, Center for Global Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, discusses her recent Ring Stage Survival Assay training hosted by the Institut Pasteur and WWARN in Phnom Pehn. Naomi explains how this technique can benefit the surveillance of antimalarial drug resistance in East Africa. Read the interview.

The standard operating procedure for this RSA is freely available along with many more procedures on the WWARN website. Explore our full list of available procedures.
