Prevention of Haemophilus Influenzae, Type b in India - A Probe Study to Evaluate the Burden of Disease


Summary

This project will measure the burden of pneumonia and meningitis that can be prevented with Hib conjugate vaccine in India. WHO has recommended the use of Hib vaccine to prevent pneumonia and meningitis. However, many countries in Asia have not incorporated Hib vaccine in EPI because of lack of disease burden data. The information generated by this study will be very valuable for the Government of India as it considers whether to implement routine use of Hib conjugate vaccine.
