Announcing Partners for a Malaria-Free Zambia

Today, Rotary International, World Vision, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced the launch of Rotary’s first Program of Scale, Partners for a Malaria-Free Zambia, a $6 million investment to train, equip and deploy Community Health Workers in Zambia.

Since then, dozens of malaria vaccine candidates have been evaluated, but RTS,S remains the only vaccine to demonstrate efficacy in young African children across a wide range of settings, for more than one year.
