Vaccine-Preventable Haemophilus influenzae type B Disease Burden and Cost-Effectiveness of Infant Vaccination in Indonesia

This article, published in the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, estimates total vaccine-preventable disease burden and the cost-effectiveness of Hib conjugate vaccine in Indonesia. The study concludes that routine infant Hib vaccination would prevent a large burden of pediatric illness and death in Indonesia. Even without external funding support, Hib vaccine will be a highly cost-effective intervention in either a monovalent or pentavalent presentation based on commonly used benchmarks. ABSTRACT ONLY.
