Fighting Other Vaccine-Preventable Diseases
CDC knows that immunization is a cost-effective and life-saving intervention. This is why we have so many goals to eradicate and eliminate vaccine-preventable diseases. But some diseases of global and regional importance – like cholera and typhoid – cannot yet be wiped off the earth, so they are targeted for prevention and control through vaccination in order to avoid unnecessary illness and death.
How CDC helps
- Assist Ministries of Health with outbreak responses
- Provide staff expertise to plan, implement, monitor and evaluate vaccination campaigns
- Develop global policies for disease control by serving on technical advisory boards
- Document the burden of disease and provide recommendations for vaccine introduction to Ministries of Health
- Evaluate the effectiveness of vaccination programs and their integration with other prevention methods (such as water, sanitation and hygiene)
- Learn what CDC does to prevent and control cholera , hepatitis B and typhoid through vaccination
