The Implementation Of The Pneumococcal Vaccine For Children Under 5 In Southeast Asia

[Full Text]



A.M. Crinnion, S. Karim, A. Ratzan, S. Young





Abstract- Pneumonia accounts for over 500,000 (19%) of deaths in children under 5 in the Southeast Asian Region, which is higher than notoriously deadly diseases such as malaria, measles, and HIV/AIDS (Rudan et al., 2008). By examining the challenges this region could have with the implementation of preventative methods (i.e. widespread vaccinations and educating natives), in combination with practices of non-profit organizations in other regions and with other diseases (i.e. GAVI Alliance, Expanded Program on Immunization), this research will aid in finding a cost-effective introduction of pneumonia vaccinations and other methods of combat with this disease in Southeast Asia.
