Malaria Vaccine: WHO Position Paper – January 2016

This article, published in the Weekly Epidemiological Record, summarizes essential background information on malaria and on GlaxoSmithKline's malaria vaccine candidate RTS,S (also known as Mosquirix™). It provides the World Health Organization's (WHO) recommendation for large-scale pilot implementations of RTS,S in three to five distinct epidemiological settings in sub-Saharan Africa. This recommendation confirms the advice provided in October 2015 by the WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization and by the Malaria Policy Advisory Committee.
