The global economic crisis must not be allowed to interfere with the delivery of new vaccines to the developing world, a global health body has warned.

news.bbc.co.uk...


The Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisations (Gavi) says it needs more than $4bn (£3bn) by 2015.

This would enable it to continue existing programmes and roll out new vaccines against diarrhoea and pneumonia.

whoa..hold on here..you need a vaccine for diarrhea?

These include immunisations against pneumococcal disease - the most common form of bacterial pneumonia - and rotavirus - the most common cause of diarrhoea.

"Children have a right to health and we have it in our power to set them on a path to healthy and productive lives. There comes a time to stop talking and start doing. I sincerely hope that we will see donors put their money on the table," said the chair of the Gavi board, Mary Robinson.

o.k. i guess you do..hmmm.

Yes, for Rotavirus.

Either RotaTeq or Rotarix.
