Malaria Funding & Resource Utilization: The First Decade of Roll Back Malaria

This report, the first in the Roll Back Malaria Progress & Impact Series, confirms that investment in malaria control is rapidly saving lives and reaping far-reaching benefits for countries. The report demonstrates that without sustained and predictable long-term funding, the significant contribution of malaria control toward achievement of the five Millennium Development Goals that are closely tied to malaria control, as well as progress toward achieving the 2010 Abuja target of universal intervention coverage, could be reversed.

Malaria Vaccine Technology Roadmap

Scientists have been working for decades to develop a preventive malaria vaccine. While they have successfully demonstrated that such a vaccine is possible, many challenges continue to impede progress on the road to an effective malaria vaccine. As a result, the Malaria Vaccine Advisory Committee to the World Health Organization (WHO), coordinated by the WHO Initiative for Vaccine Research, called for a collective effort to explore and address the challenges. This effort resulted in the Malaria Vaccine Technology Roadmap process.

Mathematical Modelling to Support Malaria Control and Elimination

​This report, part of the Roll Back Malaria Progress & Impact Series, provides an overview of mathematical modelling, explains its history in relation to epidemiology and malaria, and details its implications and uses for global and national malaria control and elimination planning. The report aims to expand the dialogue within the global malaria community—and among public health decision-makers in particular—on when and how mathematical modelling can help inform malaria control programs and policies.

A Phase 3 Trial of RTS,S/AS01 Malaria Vaccine in African Infants

This article, published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), reports results from a pivotal, large-scale Phase 3 trial of RTS,S/AS01 malaria vaccine. When compared to immunization with a control vaccine, infants (aged 6 to 12 weeks at first vaccination) vaccinated with RTS,S had one-third fewer episodes of both clinical and severe malaria and had similar reactions to the injection. In this trial, RTS,S demonstrated an acceptable safety and tolerability profile. The abstract of this article is available through the NEJM by clicking on "Visit web page" below, or for free access to the full lenth article please visit and click on "Read the NEJM article."
