This chapter focuses on attempts to introduce a market to stimulate competition in the field of malaria vaccines. It is argued that those involved in attempts to produce a malaria vaccine market continually work to manage a tension between apparent ontological singularity in market framing and multiplicity in market experimentation. However, in place of any counter-expectation that such tension should lead to critique or even abandonment of the market as a focus for managing malaria, the Market (broadly construed) continues to be heralded as the means of solving the problem. Retaining the integrity of the Market depends on upholding a set of Market principles from which any particular market intervention can be judged. The separation of the Market (as principles) from the market (as failed intervention) involves a discursive-based specificity move that prevents failure discussions being scaled up from the particular to the general.
