Five years after a committee was inaugurated by the Nigerian Institute of Management
(NIM) to find a veritable vaccine for malaria prevention, it is now evident
that the project may not see the light of the day after all. The committee comprising
members from various disciplines was drafted by the institute in 2001 with backing
from the Lagos State Government to pool all necessary efforts to produce a vaccine
that could prevent the plasmodium parasite from causing malaria.
