The World Health Organization (WHO) analysis noted that the silent pandemic of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major and growing public health problem.

“Resistant bacterial infections alone are associated with nearly 4,95 million deaths per year, of which 1,27 million are directly attributed to AMR,” the text indicated.

Faced with this situation, the health agency stated, vaccines are powerful tools for preventing infections and therefore have the potential to curb the spread.

It also called for equitable access to existing immunogens against four priority bacterial diseases: pneumococcal disease (Streptococcus pneumoniae), Hib (Haemophilus influenzae type b), tuberculosis (mycobacterium tuberculosis) and typhoid fever (Salmonella Typhi).
