Malaria is one of the main tropical diseases worldwide. The WHO estimated that in 2006, 247 million people were affected by malaria. Nearly one million of these people died. Particularly vulnerable are children under 5 years of age and pregnant women due to a (temporarily) low level of immunity. Medicines for Malaria Venture are working with partner pharma Novartis to tackle this debilitating disease.
