Malaria Vaccine Decision-Making Framework

As the development of malaria vaccines accelerates, work is also underway on the policy front to pave the way for decisions on possible malaria vaccine use. Early planning is crucial to the successful adoption and introduction of a vaccine. To facilitate the process, several African countries and their international partners are using a malaria vaccine decision-making guide. The planning guide is designed to help ministries of health prepare to decide, in a timely manner, if and how a vaccine should be introduced into their health systems to complement existing malaria control strategies. This website contains information about this work and also features an interactive map showing the progress in sub-Saharan African countries that are preparing for malaria vaccine decisions.
