Potential Public Health Impact of RTS,S Malaria Candidate Vaccine in Sub-Saharan Africa: A Modelling Study

This article, published in Malaria Journal, reports the results of a study that modeled the potential public health impact of the RTS,S candidate malaria vaccine in 42 malaria-endemic countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The authors assumed vaccination coverage equal to the diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine in their analysis and found that the addition of RTS,S to existing malaria interventions is estimated to substantially reduce the incidence of clinical malaria, severe malaria, malaria hospitalization, and deaths.
