Ghana, Kenya, Malawi to take part in malaria vaccine pilot program

Ghana, Kenya, and Malawi will participate in a World Health Organization-coordinated pilot implementation program that will make the world’s first malaria vaccine available in selected areas, beginning in 2018. The vaccine, RTS,S, was developed by GlaxoSmithKline with support from PATH to protect young children from the most deadly form of malaria. The pilot program will assess the feasibility of delivering the required four doses of RTS,S, the vaccine’s potential role in reducing childhood deaths, and its safety in the context of routine use. Read the announcement »
