NVAC Resolution: Vaccines for Developing Countries

May 7, 1996

The NVAC recognizes the US Agency for International Development’s (USAID’s) contribution to research directed at the development and testing of vaccines for childhood meningitis, pneumonia, and diarrhea in developing countries, and commends USAID for promoting epidemiologic and etiologic research collaborations with international institutions such as World Health Organization, United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), and United Nations Development Program (UNDP), domestic agencies such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and with US vaccine manufacturers. NVAC encourages USAID to continue support for the development, testing, and introduction of these vaccines in developing countries and to expand efforts in the future for new vaccines, including combination vaccines.
