global impact
Global Impact
  • Ninety-three percent of the world’s children—121 million people—had not received a pneumococcal vaccine, and 71 percent, or 93 million children, had not received the Hib vaccine, as of 2008.
  • The burden of vaccine-preventable diseases, which are responsible for one-quarter of global childhood deaths every year, falls on the poor. In low-income countries, pneumonia kills 7,320 out of 100,000 children under age five, compared with just 34 children in high-income countries.

  • AlleviA system to regulate vaccines, such as that overseen by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, exists in all developed countries but in only one-quarter of developing countries, yet vaccine production increasingly occurs in Brazil, China, India, and other developing countries.

Actions That Make a Difference

  • More financial resources are needed to distribute vaccines. Despite significant donor commitments and innovative funding mechanisms, the Global Alliance on Vaccines and Immunisation does not have the resources to meet its 2015 goals for reducing the toll of vaccine-preventable diseases.

Actions That Make a Difference

  • Immunizing more children and adults depends on a strong vaccine delivery infrastructure, effective leadership, national commitment, efforts to integrate immunization programs with other health care services, and engaged communities that understand the value of vaccines.
slide11

Actions That Make a Difference

  • Efforts are needed to combat misunderstanding and lack of information about vaccines. In some developed countries, an antivaccine movement has been built on the discredited fear that vaccines are linked to autism. And in some developing countries, other fears hold sway: In one region of Nigeria, tribal peoples believe that vaccines are being used to sterilize their children and destroy the tribe.
slide12

Actions That Make a Difference

  • New vaccines are needed to combat RSV and other acute respiratory infections. Research should also focus on improving the effectiveness of existing vaccines, reducing the required immunization dose, and developing all-in-one combinations.
