The World Health Organization says three African countries have been chosen to test the world's first malaria vaccine. Ghana, Kenya and Malawi will begin piloting the injectable vaccine next year with young children. WHO said Monday, April 24, 2017, that the vaccine has the potential to save tens of thousands of lives if used with existing measures.
