Karachi: Pakistan has become the first country in the world to have launched a new vaccine to combat typhoid. Pakistan officials said on Friday that this decision has been taken after the recent increase in typhoid cases in the country. The World Health Organization has approved this vaccine. It will be used in a two-week immunization campaign in Sindh province. Sindh is the province of Pakistan where 10,000 typhoid cases have been reported since 2017.

Health Minister of Sindh Province, Azra Pechhuho has told in Karachi on Friday, 'Two weeks of the campaign is starting from today. Under this, 1 crore children from 9 months to 15 years will be vaccinated. After a two-week campaign in Sindh, this vaccine can be used in other states in the next few years.

Pakistan spends a very small amount on its health budget and its large population is vulnerable to diseases like typhoid. In 2017, 63% of typhoid cases were reported, of which 70 percent were children. Pakistan has been provided vaccines by the World Health Organization and Vaccine Alliance Gavi.
