By the time the second hand on your wristwatch has circled its dial, a child in Africa will have died of malaria.
By the time the second hand on your wristwatch has circled its dial, a child in Africa will have died of malaria. And by the time those minutes have added up to a year, more than 500,000 people will have died from the disease - and 90% of those deaths will happen in Africa.
GSK has been involved in the fight against malaria for decades. We believe that a comprehensive approach to malaria is required to scale-up use of all well established control tools, while continuing to invest in the development and use of innovative tools.
We have an active malaria research and development (R&D) programme and work hand-in-hand with organisations at the local, regional and international levels to ensure that our products complement existing malaria interventions.
