Jim Mulry is Head of Diagnostics for the Global Health Institute, a non-profit arm of Merck, the German biotech company. Jim brings over 40 years of experience in clinical laboratory diagnostics. His specialty is helping women and children from developing countries to combat infectious diseases.

Jim is a member of the Phoenix 100 Rotary Club. He is active with Rotarians Against Malaria Global and Malaria Partners International, also part of Rotary International.

The Malaria Microscopy Project unites Rotarians with the Global Health Institute to both combat malaria and enhance healthcare delivery in developing countries. The Global Health Institute funds the education of laboratory technologists to better diagnose malaria and other fevers. The Rotary helps by
raising funds to purchase needed microscopes. In sub-Saharan Africa, 60,000 children die of malaria every year. Better microscopy education helps early diagnosis. Jim is working with Rotarians globally with ongoing projects in Ghana, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Botswana, Sudan, Mali, Tanzania,
Columbia, and Pakistan. Please come and see how you can help.
