The malaria vaccine is ready, tested and will be marketed in Kenya, Ghana and Malawi in 2018.
The agreement was reached by Glaxo, the pharmaceutical multinational who bought the vaccine, and the African states that, after attending tests lasting more than a year, are ready to use total prevention in their countries.
From the beginning of next year, according to the four-year plan signed by the large UK-based pharmaceutical company, it will benefit 720,000 children under the age of twelve, who will increase year by year.
Organizations that have been dealing with malaria for years now applaud the turning point in preventing a disease that kills more than 400,000 people a year and still does not have an efficient cure. In fact, so-called prophylaxis works only for 40% of cases, while the vaccine promises total coverage of the disease.
A revolutionary new breakthrough in malaria treatment has been developed by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health's Malaria Research Institute in Baltimore, USA.
