A Malaria Vaccine!

The world’s first vaccine against malaria will be introduced in three countries – Ghana, Kenya and Malawi – starting in 2018!

The vaccine needs to be given four times – once a month for three months and then a fourth dose 18 months later. The pilot will involve more than 750,000 children aged between five and 17 months.

“Combined with existing malaria interventions, such a vaccine would have the potential to save tens of thousands of lives in Africa.”
