Making History: The First Malaria Vaccine in Africa

Tuesday, November 19, 2019
12 PM – 1:15 PM

Rayburn House Office Building
Room 2043
Washington, DC

RSVP

Join PATH/Malaria No More for a discussion on the world’s first malaria vaccine being piloted in Ghana, Kenya, and Malawi.

In the last decade, malaria deaths worldwide have declined by more than half. But the toll—especially in sub-Saharan Africa—remains unacceptably high: a child still dies of malaria every two minutes. New tools are needed to reinforce the fight against this deadly parasitic disease. This lunch panel, organized in cooperation with the House Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases Caucus, will explore what this milestone vaccine could mean for the fight against malaria.

Please contact Claire (cfelten@path.org) with any questions.
