Contribution to National Child Health Policy

While publishing in international journals, Department of Microbiology has always aimed to work with the common causes of child morbidity and mortality in Bangladesh. Data generated from this laboratory has direct implication to help the policy makers of this country to take evidence based decisions on introduction of HIb vaccine. Hopefully, contribution of this department through publications and the BBC documentary on Hib, will facilitate the country to get GAVI funding and introduce the Hib vaccine by 2008.

It is also expected that the ongoing work of this laboratory on S. pneumoniae will help the development of generation of new Pneumococcal vaccine which will be appropriate for the children of Bangladesh. The department expects that the continuous input from its work will make Bangladesh eligible to get the new generation vaccine at real time, through GAVI funding.
