Bloodless malaria test invented by Ugandans

Inventors of a bloodless malaria test for malaria say their device could help identify cases of the disease much earlier.

Nearly half a million people die from malaria every year, the vast majority in sub-Saharan Africa.

Shafik Sekitto, from the Ugandan team behind the invention, spoke to the BBC about the device, which has just won a prestigious prize.
