The malaria vaccine was invented more than a century ago — yet each year, hundreds of thousands of people still die from the disease. How can we improve this vital vaccine? In this informative talk, immunologist and TED Fellow Faith Osier shows how she's combining cutting-edge technology with century-old insights in the hopes of creating a new vaccine that eradicates malaria once and for all.

    This only really happens in poor countries so maybe just provide better health care

    • I dont think you understand what malaria is. Let me explain something to you that is common sense to everyone but people from your disgusting nation. Mosquitoes in the northern hemisphere do not have malaria because it is too cold for them to develop it during the winter.

      It has nothing to do with poor or rich, it has to do with temperature over seasons and the mosquitoes ability to keep the virus alive inside of itself.

    • Actually it’s because most mosquitos are in tropical countries who are coincidentally poor. She is literally trying to provide better health care, what is your point?

    • Jason Z oh my dear friend, that is exactly a reason why we began to talk about it. Climate is changing and it’s not a “black mirror” anymore. Soon we will get mosquitos in Europe for example and we are worry now :))) fk ppl are dying almost 100 years and nobody wants to invest money to make a real vaccine but shity one. And immunity to vaccine is rising in mosquitoes aswell :))) ehhh… man wtf is going on

    Keep in mind that the red Cross have been using the MMS protocol of Jim Humble to fight it. But big pharma won’t allow.

    Overpopulation is bad.

  9. So, in 50 years we will get a vaccine. That’s what I’m getting from this…
    At least she will be alive to see the fruition of her work… Probably. She looks to be under 50.

    Great work!

    Forget vaccines! Help people develop a healthy immune system by providing clean organic food and clean water. Get rid of all the toxins in the environment.
    Vaccines are nothing but big business for Big Pharma, and seem to cause more harm than good.

  12. She sounds like she’s about to break into tears.

  13. We have the technology to wipe out mosquitos completely. It’s beyond time to use it. Even scientists studying mosquitos agree the positives would far outweigh any ecological consequences

    • Show me the proof

    • Deoxy king The proof of the technology? Do a quick google search, easy to research yourself

      Westie did the search and your wrong. They have wiped out small lab population but still require years of testing in more realistic environments before know if it would work in the wild. Also no where did I find that it would be ok environmentally to wipe out mosquitos as many fish birds and other animals eat them

    Very interesting!

  16. Some comments in this video section are just sad, and ignorant. I hope for the best in the project.
