Like many fellow Kenyans, Allan Pamba had his first experience of malaria as a small boy in his grandparents’ village.

Growing up, he learned with horror of the disease’s heavy toll: of the global 400,000 deaths a year from malaria, the majority are children under five in sub-Saharan Africa.

He became a doctor, and his early research into malaria and HIV led him to fight these illnesses from inside GlaxoSmithKline, making sure governments and companies don’t lose sight of people’s needs.
