"MTAFITI" - the monthly news and events round-up of Ifakara Health Institute for August 2022 is already out. The main theme of the current edition is on the impact that Ifakara has had in the malaria vaccine trials globally.

The editor's choice top story reports yet another milestone after Ifakara clinical trialists conducted the first malaria blood stage challenge in Africa. These latest developments speak loud about Ifakara's impact on malaria vaccine trials which cannot be overemphasized.  

And the readers' top story - a story that was most read in both the Ifakara website and social media platforms - provides fresh evidence why investments in primary health care can reduce cost burdens and access barriers to maternal and child healthcare among vulnerable groups.

The round-up summarizes other reports, news, events, new projects and publications. Also, there's is a nice video to watch on an Ifakara MasterClass with Oxford University's Prof. Adrian Hill. In the video, Prof. Hill talks about "The next malaria vaccine".
