IVI announces the prequalification of innovative cholera vaccine by the World Health Organization
Date:11/11/2011

3 million cases requiring treatment and about 94,000 deaths are due to cholera in endemic countries. The large outbreak that erupted in Haiti in October 2010 demonstrates that the incidence and severity of the disease can shift dramatically over a short period of time. The Haitian health ministry reported that this outbreak had caused 194,095 cumulative cases and 3,819 deaths by January 16, 2011.

Also, West and Central Africa have recently been besieged by a major outbreak across the region. According to UNICEF, 85,000 cholera cases and 2,466 deaths have been reported this year so far, potentially making it one of the worst outbreaks in the region's history. Deploying Shanchol, in conjunction with other preventive interventions and treatment, could play a key role in saving lives both in countries where the disease is endemic and in settings of natural disasters or humanitarian crises.

"In light of the devastating cholera outbreaks in Haiti, Pakistan, Nepal and in several countries of Africa, there is a clear need for a solution to halt the countless deaths and suffering," said Dr. Loucq. "A vaccine like Shanchol should positively impact public health efforts to control cholera in these countries. Now that Shanchol is WHO prequalified, IVI is looking forward to working with governments and other organizations to introduce this vaccine and to make it widely available for use around the world."

"This demonstrates the power of vaccines to prevent epidemic diseases in people at risk," said Dr. Regina Rabinovich, Director of Infectious Diseases at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. "We must continue to work together to ensure that everyone has access to affordable vaccines, no matter where they live."
