Vaccines are a critical tool in preventing and controlling infectious disease outbreaks and are estimated to avert 3.5–5 million deaths every year. The World Health Organization recognises immunisation as a key component of primary healthcare and an indisputable human right. As a leading technical organisation specialising in the prevention, control and treatment of malaria and other communicable diseases, Malaria Consortium fully recognises the immense value of immunisation in controlling and eliminating some of the world's deadliest diseases. To keep populations healthy and save lives, we believe it is crucial that the global community continues to support and invest in vaccine development.
