download, emerging markets, pandemic preparedness

WHO led an initiative to increase vaccine supply. The 2006 consultation identify new approaches to immunize 6.7 billion people as quickly as possible. The target: 13.5 billion doses (assuming 2 doses per vaccine) and used within 6 months of the pandemic alert. The Global Pandemic Influenza Action Plan (GAP) promotes seasonal vaccine programs, expansion of manufacturing capability particularly in developing countries and enhanced R&D. The situation in 2006 can be summed up as follows:

· Global influenza vaccine production at 350 million doses (by 2009 up to 900 million doses)

· 90% of vaccine production in 9 countries in Europe and North America

· Middle East, Africa and Asia unprotected
