Presentation download: Technology transfer to developing country vaccine manufacturers

WHO led an initiative to increase vaccine supply. The 2006 consultation identify new approaches to immunize 6.7 billion people as quickly as possible.  The target: 13.5 billion doses (assuming 2 doses per vaccine) and used within 6 months of the pandemic alert.  The Global Pandemic Influenza Action Plan (GAP) promotes seasonal vaccine programs, expansion of manufacturing capability particularly in developing countries and enhanced R&D. The situation in 2006 can be summed up as follows:
·         Global influenza vaccine production at 350 million doses (by 2009 up to 900 million doses)
·         90% of vaccine production in 9 countries in Europe and North America
·         Middle East, Africa and Asia unprotected
Marc LaForce, Director, Meningitis Vaccine Project, PATH joined us at the World Vaccine Congress in Washington 2012, to present on technology transfer to developing country vaccine manufacturers.
