Ghana’s Malaria Vaccination Program Faces Boycott Amidst Rumors

Ghana's Malaria Vaccination Program Faces Boycott Amidst Rumors

A civil society organization, the Coalition for Ghana’s Independence is urging the public to boycott the pilot malaria vaccination exercise.

Ghana on May 1, 2019 became the second country in the world after Malawi to introduce the only Malaria tested vaccine.

The vaccine is expected to reduce hundreds of thousands of deaths from Malaria in Africa each year.

According to Ghana’s Health Service, people in every part of the country—roughly 30 million men, women and children—are at risk of malaria, and 20 percent of all children have malaria parasites in their blood.

There were an estimated 11 Million suspected cases of malaria in Ghana and 5.5 million confirmed cases in 2018.
