Africa Begins World's Biggest Anti-Malaria Vaccine Campaign

Some 360,000 children a year in three African countries are to receive a powerful anti-malaria drug as part of a pilot project to help reduce the incidence of the deadly disease. Malawi is the first country to begin the use of the mosquirix vaccine as part of routine childhood immunisation programmes, with Ghana and Kenya to follow.
