    Three African countries will soon start rolling out the world's first malaria vaccine.

    Last year, more than 200 million people around the world were affected by the disease.

    Most of those cases were reported in Africa.

    Kenya, Ghana and Malawi will be among the first nations to try out the vaccine.
