Updated Estimation of the Impact of a Japanese Encephalitis Immunization Program With Live, Attenuated SA 14-14-2 Vaccine in Nepal

This article, published in PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases, describes the impact of the Japanese encephalitis (JE) immunization program in Nepal using SA 14-14-2 JE vaccine from 2006 to 2011. A previous assessment after the initial program implementation phase described a significantly lower post-campaign JE incidence compared to expected incidence; this evaluation is updated with additional post-campaign data. The authors found a 78 percent lower incidence of JE post-campaign than would have been expected with no campaign. This analysis strengthens previous findings of the substantial impact of Nepal’s JE immunization program using SA 14-14-2 JE vaccine.
