A Historic Event | W.H.O. Recommends Malaria Vaccination
In a historic announcement earlier this month the World Health Organisation have formally recommended the use of the malaria vaccine to immunise all children against this terrible disease.
The Nasio Trust are proud to have been involved in immunisation of children against Malaria since 2019, and overjoyed that the practice will now become widespread.
We have vaccinated over 1,000 children in the communities where we operate and have seen incredible results. Since widespread vaccination has taken place, not one of the children treated has died from malaria.
Of those 1,000 children, only 32 have presented with malarial symptoms, and in every cases they were able to be treated for only mild infection.
You can read a full report, prepared by the GMK Medical Centre, on our malaria vaccination program here.
Despite this amazing progress we’re still in desperate need of treated mosquito nets to prevent people from contracting malaria, donate one now here.
