Malaria Vaccine Recommended for Broader use by WHO

On October 6th, the World Health Organization (WHO) formally recommended the RTS,S malaria vaccine for broader use among children in sub-Saharan Africa and in other regions with moderate to high malaria transmission. This is the first time ever that a vaccine has been recommended to combat malaria, a disease that has killed billions of people globally over many centuries. Malaria researchers from CDC’s Division of Parasitic Diseases and Malaria (DPDM) have been instrumental in this major milestone.
