Malaria Vaccine Achieves Higher Efficacy & Unprecedented Success

After 12 months of conducting research on 450 Burkinabé children, researchers from the University of Oxford’s Jenner Institute recently discovered that an experimental vaccine produced to tackle the most life-threatening form of malaria parasite had between 74% and 77% efficacy against malaria in the children. This milestone comes after decades of obtaining unsatisfactory results, and the discovery has resurrected hopes that an effective vaccine can be produced to tackle malaria which kills an estimated 400,000 people per annum, mostly children.
