"Geneva (AFP) – More than a million children in Ghana, Kenya and Malawi have
now received at least one dose of the first anti-malaria vaccine, the World
Health Organization said Thursday.
The "breakthrough" RTS,S vaccine was pioneered in Malawi in April 2019 and
found to be safe and to substantially reduce severe cases of the disease, the
WHO said in a statement ahead of World Malaria Day on April 25.
The WHO recommended the widespread deployment of the vaccine for children
living in sub-Saharan Africa and areas at risk in October 2021, and said its
pilot scheme could save the lives of between 40,000 and 80,000 children in
Africa each year."
