The ACT Consortium is an international research collaboration formed in November 2007 to answer key questions on malaria drug delivery in Africa and Asia.  

Our goal is to develop and evaluate delivery mechanisms to improve ACT access, targeting, safety and quality. 

The ACT Consortium is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and has partners throughout Africa, Asia, Europe and the United States.  It is coordinated through the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
