Malaria is a major cause of ill-health and death, especially in children and pregnant women. It is a cause of low birth weight, premature deliveries, still births and abortion in women.

The world has made historic progress in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of malaria.

The major priority now is the development of an effective vaccine against P. falciparum which is able to reduce overall childhood mortality in Africa by 30% or more.
