The objectives of this symposium, attended by MMV stakeholders and over 70 scientists, researchers, national malaria programme officers, and representatives of NGOs from around the world, were to assemble relevant players in Access and Delivery in east Africa, look at the reality of antimalarial distribution in the private sector, highlight gaps in ACT provision especially to the rural poor, share innovative approaches to closing this gap, and outline MMV's access initiatives. A number of issues to be aware of, obstacles to overcome and points for further action were identified. Summaries of the presentations are available, with links to the full presentations; the agenda and list of participants are also available.
