Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) mène actuellement une campagne de vaccination anti pneumococcique (PCV) et anti Haemophilus (Hib) pour protéger environ 10 000 enfants réfugiés contre les infections respiratoires, dans la région d'Adjumani, au nord de l'Ouganda.
Ce type de vaccination recommandée par l'Organisation Mondiale de la Santé (OMS) en situation d'urgence humanitaire reste cependant difficile à mettre en œuvre.
Depuis l'année dernière, l'OMS préconise d'augmenter le nombre de vaccins offerts dans ces situations d'urgence.

Millions of Nigeria children in danger as country runs out of vaccines

An estimated six to seven million Nigerian children of immunizable age are in danger of dying from vaccine-preventable diseases this year, if the Federal Government fails to intervene in the current stock out of vaccines in the country, a body of scientists is warning.
