    Consultation and Advisory Process

    The World Bank, The GAVI Alliance and the AMC Donor Committee sought stakeholder input on the planning and design of the pilot AMC through expert groups, consultations, meetings and roundtables. The aim was to incorporate into the design of the AMC the recommendations of economists, global health experts, medical practitioners and scientists from developing and industrialized countries as well as manufacturers and civil society organizations.

    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.

    Pneumococcal Advance Market Commitment: Lessons Learnt on Disease and Design Choices and Processes

    This document describes early lessons learnt on the selection of a target disease, on core design choices, and on processes related to the pilot Advance Market Commitment (AMC) for pneumococcal vaccines. While ongoing monitoring and evaluations scheduled for the coming years will provide further information about the value of the Pneumo AMC, this document highlights some of the key lessons to date and aims to provide a starting point to inform discussions about the potential applications of the AMC concept to other vaccines or health and non-health interventions.

    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.
