rimental malaria vaccines, most in early pre-clinical testing, to move into a Phase III clinical trial. The trial, which is expected to take three years, is to begin within the next few days among 14,000 infants in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Gabon, Tanzania, Kenya, Malawi and Mozambique. Ballou will discuss the prospects for a malaria vaccine at the NFID meeting at 12:45 p.m. on Wednesday.

"Preliminary studies indicate that it's no longer a question of whether but when we will have a malaria vaccine," said Susan J. Rehm, MD, medical director of NFID and co-chair of the conference. "This is very exciting. Just as encouraging is the progress we are making against such fatal and debilitating diseases as Group A meningitis in Africa. These advances are possible because of important partnerships between academia, private industry, governments, public health officials and philanthropic organizations."

In a keynote address at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, David Salisbury, MBBS, Director of Immunisation for the UK Department of Health in London, discussed accelerated efforts to deliver these and other vaccines to the world's poorest people. Under a three-year-old program initiated by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF, public-health officials are now targeting individuals of all ages, not just children, for immunization and trying to integrate vaccines with other critical health needs.
