Development of the WHO’s typhoid vaccines position paper
MMGH supported the WHO Initiative for Vaccine Research (IVR) in facilitating a Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunisation (SAGE) Working Group review of the scientific evidence and programmematic considerations supporting use of typhoid vaccines, with a focus on conjugate vaccines. The resulting vaccine recommendations were endorsed by the WHO SAGE in October 2017 and published as a WHO Position Paper.
