Ghana along with 11 other African countries, is set to receive a new vaccine against malaria: WHO
Vaccine against malaria: The World Health Organization (WHO) and its partners have announced plans to distribute approximately 18 million doses of the world’s first malaria vaccine to 12 African nations by 2025.
These countries include Malawi, Ghana, and Kenya, which have already implemented pilot programs for the Mosquirix vaccine.
Due to limited availability, priority will be given to countries with the greatest need and potential impact.
Unfortunately, Mozambique and Sudan will not be included in the distribution due to their high rates of vaccine dropouts.
According to the WHO, the vaccine, developed by the British company GSK, has the potential to save one life for every 200 vaccinated children.
