WHO Approves First Ever Malaria Vaccine

October 7, 2021

After decades of research, a malaria vaccine has been approved. According to the New York Times, the World Health Organization endorsed the vaccine. The WHO also reports that in large-scale clinical trials, the vaccine prevented around 4 in 10 cases of malaria within four years for children who received the four doses. Additionally, the vaccine prevented 3 in 10 cases of severe malaria.

The WHO has recommended the vaccine be piloted in parts of Ghana, Kenya and Malawi.

In 2019, as many as 227 million people were sickened with malaria and over 400,000 died, the bulk of whom were children. The disease is caused by parasites that are transmitted by infected mosquitoes.
