Preparing for Malaria Vaccines: African Scientists Speak Out

In this five-minute video, scientist-advocates describe their critical role in closing the gap between the availability of lifesaving interventions and developing countries' access to them. A malaria vaccine could be available in just a few short years. Policymakers will need vital information from researchers to plan for its introduction, but all too frequently a gap in communication between the two results in slow decision-making. In the case of malaria, this could mean the difference between life and death for millions of children in Africa.
