A Ugandan inventor has won a major prize for a device which tests for malaria without drawing blood.
 
Brian Gitta, 24, won the Royal Academy of Engineering's Africa Prize for a device that detects tell-tale signs of malaria by shining a red beam of light on the patient's finger.

 
The diagnosis is ready to be shared with a mobile phone in a minute.
 
He developed the device, called Matibabu after blood tests failed to diagnose his own malaria.
