Immunization and Vaccine Development by WHO Regional Office for Africa

Submission deadline May 01 2018 | 22 Articles

Immunization is widely recognized as a proven tool for controlling and possibly eradicating disease and remains one of the most cost effective public health interventions. Infectious agents such as viruses, bacteria and parasites are responsible for the major childhood diseases (e.g. viruses cause measles and polio while bacteria cause tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis).
