Exactly four months back, the country with pride and dedication marked an historical achievement with the introduction of Inactivated Polio Vaccine (IPV) making it the first in the region.The introduction of the pneumococcal vaccine will address one of the major killers of children: pneumonia. Some of the other severe forms of pneumococcal disease are pneumonia, meningitis causing life-long disability such as hearing loss and learning disability. All of these are significant public health problems and have a serious impact in child health around the world. In Nepal, as in other developing countries, deaths from pneumococcal disease are common in young children.
