Professor Nirmal Ganguly has had a long career as a malaria researcher working for many health organisations in India. In this short video, Professor Ganguly talks about what a major health issue malaria was in India in the past. Although growing development has lessened the problem in some parts of the world, this disease still affects so many people who fall below the poverty line.

Professor Ganguly sees himself as an ambassador for WWARN, promoting WWARN’s work to those in government or policy positions.
