Pneumococcal Disease - The Human Face
Stories of three young children in Africa and Asia and their fight against pneumococcal disease.
Pneumococcal Disease Background
Streptococcus pneumoniae are bacteria that are frequently found in the upper respiratory tract of healthy children and adults. These bacteria, however, can also cause a range of infections – from relatively mild ear infections to fatal pneumonia, meningitis, and sepsis. Serious pneumococcal infections can occur throughout life, but children under two years old and the elderly are at highest risk.

Serotype Replacement Note - Prepared by the IAC
The serotype replacement issue arises from extensive use of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, which is expected to result in some increase of disease occurence due to serotypes not in the vaccine. This raises question whether the increases could reach a point where the benefit of the vaccine is lost, or the increases will be small relative to the decline in vaccine type disease.
