Solve for X Malaria Eradication

Problem: Malaria has killed over 10 million people in the last decade in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Solution: Eliminate the malaria’s vectors, a handful of species of mosquitoes, by developing and disseminating infertile male mosquitoes.

Breakthrough technology that might make this possible: Inject male mosquitoes with a inhibitor that stops sperm formation. Female mosquitoes can only mate once; when the infertile males mate with females it stops reproduction and reduces the mosquito population and malaria along with it.
