The Rotary Clubs of Southport, Broadbeach, Hope island and the Rotary Satellite Club of Southport-Griffith University have initiated a fund-raising project to support further development of a promising malaria vaccine that has been created by Professor Michael Good and his team at the Institute for Glycomics, Griffith University on the Gold Coast, Australia.
The fund-raising project has been registered by Rotary Australia Benevolent Society (RABS) and endorsed by the National Committee of Rotarians Against Malaria (RAMS).

In 2017, Rotary and the Institute for Glycomics at Griffith University formally established The Malaria Vaccine Project, which is managed on behalf of the two partners by a Committee of 14 persons representing the two partners in the Project. This Committee is charged with raising funds for the research.
