Yellow Fever Initiative

JAMA. 2007;297(23):2578. doi:10.1001/jama.297.23.2578-a

An effort to contain yellow fever, funded by a $58 million contribution from the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, will feature comprehensive immunization campaigns in a dozen countries in West Africa, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced last month (http://www.who.int/csr/disease/yellowfev/introduction/en/index.html).

The Yellow Fever Initiative is targeting the 12 countries that are at highest risk (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Togo) by immunizing more than 48 million people over the next 4 years.
