Young Children In Developing World Receive Accelerated Access to Pfizer's Prevenar 13 Vaccine
Date:12/12/2010

dren in the world's poorest countries under the terms of the AMC for pneumococcal disease.

A new approach to public health funding, the AMC, which is administered by the GAVI Alliance, is designed to procure vaccines specifically for least developed countries.  In this pilot AMC for PD, the governments of Italy, the United Kingdom, Canada, the Russian Federation and Norway as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Bank, and GAVI have committed financing.

In addition, this novel program is a reflection of the dedication and commitment of organizations such as the GAVI Alliance, the World Bank and other public health organizations.

"This innovative new model is poised to drive accelerated access to potentially lifesaving vaccines for millions of children in the world's poorest countries, where PD exacts its greatest toll," adds Mr. Swindell.  "It's a great example of how creative partnerships can result in solutions for some of the most pressing public health issues."

Pneumococcal Disease

PD is complex and describes a group of illnesses, all caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae (S. pneumoniae).  It includes invasive infections such as bacteremia and meningitis, as well as non-invasive disease including pneumonia and acute otitis media.

Prevenar 13 is marketed in the United States as Prevnar 13 (Pneumococcal 13-valent Conjugate Vaccine [Diphtheria CRM197 Protein]).  In the United States, Prevnar 13 is not indicated for the prevention of pneumonia.

Indication for Prevnar 13® in the United States

In the United States, Prevnar 13 is a vaccine approved for use in children 6 weeks through 5 years of age (prior to the sixth birthday).  Prevnar 13 is indicated for active immunization for the prevention of invasive disease caused by 13 strains of S. pneumoniae (1, 3, 4, 5, 6A, 6B, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 1
