Malaria is an endemic disease in much of the world, and is a major contributor to child and infant mortality in many countries. Our malaria podcasts describe efforts by NDM clinicians and scientists, in Oxford and around the world, to treat and prevent malaria, including vaccine development, parasitology, and improved treatment for severe malaria, with the aim to lessen the disease burden on some of the world's most vulnerable people.
