      Pneumonia is the leading killer of children under five in Yemen, with acute respiratory diseases accounting for 20 to 23 per cent of the country’s infant deaths. But that is set to change with the GAVI-supported introduction in January of a new vaccine against pneumococcal disease, the leading cause of pneumonia. From the first day of the vaccine launch, families flocked to health centers across the country, bringing their babies for protection against this killer disease. The Ministry of Health had ensured the vaccines would be available countrywide and had conducted a major information campaign so people would know about the vaccine. Pneumonia takes its highest toll among the poor, where access to health care is limited. In Yemen, poverty combines with deserts, a lack of roads and mountainous terrain, making it difficult to bring a sick child for medical help. Only half of Yemen’s population of more than 23 million has access to a health facility, so only the lucky ones are able to get medical treatment. Several times a year, outreach workers travel by four wheel drive vehicles, on bicycles and on foot to vaccinate those babies living far from any health facilities. All children will now be protected against dangerous childhood diseases, including pneumococcal disease. All routine vaccination is free. This vaccination saves children’s lives. By preventing disease, it will also save on medical costs for families in the grip of poverty. GAVI and its partners aim to assist in rolling out pneumococcal vaccines in more than 40 of the world’s poorest countries by 2015, which could avert approximately 700,000 deaths by 2015 and up to seven million deaths by 2030.

            MenAfriVac, a new vaccine against Meningococcal Meningitis seroptype Nm A, is expected to prevent meningitis epidemics in Africa's "meningitis belt" of 25 countries that stretch from Senegal in the west to Ethiopia in the east. Hit by epidemics every few years, the meningitis belt accounts for 95 percent of the world's meningococcal meningitis disease burden. The region's worst epidemic in recent times, the 1996 epidemic, hit more than 250,000 people in the region, killing 25,000 people and causing residual disability for 50,000 others. Besides the death and disability though, meningitis epidemics have a profound socio-political significance too. Epidemics frighten people away from work and cost large amounts of money to handle. Developed by the Meningitis Vaccine Project, a joint project of PATH and WHO, the vaccine was launched in Burkina Faso in November 2010. MenAfriVac costs less than 50 US cents per dose and is 95 percent effective. The GAVI Alliance is paying the overwhelming majority of costs to roll the vaccine out. If fully funded, GAVI expects to see 236 million people vaccinated with MenAfriVac in all 25 countries of the meningitis belt.

              MenAfriVac, nouveau vaccin contre la méningite A, promet de mettre fin aux épidémies de méningites dans les 25 pays Africains de la dite "ceinture de la méningite", qui s'étend du Sénégal à l'ouest, à l'Ethiopie à l'est. Frappée par la méningite chaque année ou presque, la ceinture de la méningite répertorie 95% des cas de méningites à méningocoques. En 1996, la flambée méningitique saisonnière à travers plusieurs de ces pays a touché plus de 250,000 personnes, en a tué 25,000, et en a laissé 50,000 handicapées à vie. Au delà des décès et des handicaps causés, les épidémies de méningites provoquent un profond chaos social et politique. La peur tétanise les gens à tel point qu'ils ne se rendent plus au travail. Développé par MVP (Meningitis Vaccine Project), projet conjoint de l'OMS et de PATH, le vaccin a été introduit au Burkina Faso en novembre 2010. MenAfriVac coute 50 cents US la dose et est efficace à 95%. GAVI Alliance finance la majorité des frais pour l'introduction de ce vaccin. Intégralement financé, GAVI prévoit de vacciner 236 millions de personnes avec le MenAfriVac dans 25 pays de la ceinture de la méningite.

                    This year, millions of children will receive the new pneumococcal vaccine, which protects against the world's biggest killer of children, pneumonia. By supporting the introduction of this new vaccine to more than 40 countries, GAVI aims to prevent some 700,000 deaths by 2015 and up to seven million deaths by 2030. The introduction of this new vaccine is a critical contribution to MDG4 on child mortality, the two thirds reduction of child mortality between 1990 and 2015.

                      Pneumonia is the leading cause of death in children and pneumococcal disease is the leading cause of those pneumonia deaths. Pneumococcal disease can be prevented by vaccination, but until now vaccines have only been developed for use in rich countries. But things are changing. The GAVI Alliance and its partners are dedicated to increasing access to suitable vaccines for children in the developing world. A new vaccine to prevent pneumococcal disease among children is being introduced across the developing world. By 2015, The GAVI Alliance plans to vaccinate 90 million children in more than 40 countries, so that all children can get the best possible start in life. www.gavialliance.org
