Gapminder: PCV Introduction Status (2009)

This graph represents official WHO estimates of the burden of Hib and pneumococcal disease among children worldwide. This project compiled and modeled the global, regional, and country-specific burden of Haemophilus-influenzae type b and pneumococcal disease, the two leading causes of childhood pneumonia. Details regarding the methods and findings are available from The Lancet and the WHO website.
