Dr Doussou Touré arrives for work at Coléah Medical Centre. She washes her hands from a bucket set up in front of the building, proceeds to a screening area where her temperature is checked and recorded and only then enters the bustling facility that she supervises.
 
“Ebola is under control now, but we try to keep up the infection prevention and control systems that were put in place during the outbreak,” Dr Touré says, pointing to several sturdy, brightly-coloured bins, each one designated for the disposal of varying waste matter.

« C'est insupportable, comment peut-on manquer de vaccins en 2015 en France ?

China Human Vaccine Industry Report, 2015-2018

A vaccine is a preventive biological product for human use that prevents and controls the occurrence and prevalence of infectious diseases, so the demand for such products is relatively rigid. Due to suspected deaths stemming from vaccination and some companies' (such as Shenzhen Kangtai, Tiantan Biological and Dalian Hissen) production halts of some products because of their failure to pass new GMP certification, China's human vaccine lot release volume in 2014 declined by 2.4% year on year to 791 million doses.
