W.H.O. Approves World’s First Malaria Vaccine for Use in Children


The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) recommended widespread use of the world’s first W.H.O.-approved malaria vaccine on Wednesday, advising that it be administered to children across sub-Saharan Africa.

“The recommendation is based on results from an ongoing pilot programme in Ghana, Kenya, and Malawi,” the United Nations (U.N.) health body revealed in a press release issued October 6.

“More than 800,000 children have received at least one dose” of the malaria vaccine through the pilot program since 2019, the BBC reported October 7.

“Malaria remains a primary cause of childhood illness and death in sub-Saharan Africa. More than 260,000 African children under the age of five die from malaria annually,” according to the W.H.O.
