February 2, 2012 If the new numbers are right, it means there's little chance that malaria deaths can be cut to near-zero by 2015, just three years from now. That was the goal set last year by the World Health Organization.
October 18, 2011 Several thousand young African children who got three doses of the experimental vaccine had about 55 percent less risk of getting malaria over a year than those who got a control vaccine against rabies or meningitis.
August 18, 2011 Malaria is rebounding in a Senegalese village as mosquitos become resistant to insecticide-treated bednets and some people lose their immunity to the disease. This could mean that the global strategies to eliminate malaria are fundamentally flawed. But some health experts question this interpretation.
July 6, 2011 The World Health Organization said it's possible to end deaths from malaria as soon as 2015. Now the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is out with a map that shows how it could be done.
April 25, 2011 Coming up with vaccine against malaria has proven to be exceedingly difficult. Dutch researchers have found some small success by "vaccinating" people with mosquito bites.
December 14, 2010 Malaria cases have been cut by almost 50 percent in 11 African countries, according to a World Health Organization report documenting eradication efforts since 2008. The report also says the disease was eradicated in Morocco and Turkmenistan.
