Global and regional summary - World Health Organization.
Infectious diseases, especially vaccine-preventable diarrheal and respiratory infections in children, are responsible for millions of deaths (one-fifth of global mortality) (Kieny and Girard, 2005). Pneumococcal disease and rotavirus diarrhea alone cause approximately 1.3 million deaths among infants and young children (WHO, 2006b).
The prevention and control of vaccine-preventable diseases is a global issue, and Australia is an active partner with the WHO member states in the Western Pacific and other regions. This includes under the Enhanced Programme on Immunisation (EPI) and contributes to: strengthening the WPRO’s efforts to control hepatitis B, rotavirus and bacterial meningitis through immunisation; eliminate.
The Vaccine Preventable Disease in Canada: Surveillance Report to December 31, 2015 summarizes the epidemiology of 12 nationally notifiable VPDs for which publicly-funded routine vaccination programs are in place in all provinces and territories.

Vaccine-preventable diseases (VPD) have long had the attribute of being “childhood diseases”, although affecting people of all ages. Although WHO estimates that two million child deaths were prevented through vaccination in 2003 (1), deaths from VPDs in adults remain a significant public health problem.
An unprecedented increase in new vaccine development has occurred over the past three decades. This activity has resulted in vaccines that protect against an increased range of vaccine-preventable diseases, vaccines that reduce the number of required injections, and vaccines with improved safety and purity. New methods of discovery, such as reverse vaccinology, structural biology, and systems.
Planning and monitoring vaccine introduction and effectiveness relies on strong vaccine-preventable disease (VPD) surveillance. In low and middle-income countries (LMICs) especially, cost is a commonly reported barrier to VPD surveillance system maintenance and performance; however, it is rarely calculated or assessed. This review describes and compares studies on the availability of cost.
