Not-so-routine in Cambodia

New campaigns and routine immunization will protect more children from Japanese encephalitis

Thank you for your continued support of PATH’s work to stop Japanese encephalitis (JE)!
We have some exciting news to share with you. On March 1—with the support of PATH, our supporters, and global funders—the government of Cambodia launched a new series of JE immunization campaigns. In March alone, leaders expect the expanded effort to reach an astounding 4.3 million children aged 9 months to 15 years across the country.

Even more exciting? Cambodia is planning to add the JE vaccination to its routine immunization program after this campaign ends. That means that every child will receive protection from this deadly disease along with other standard vaccines. That’s big news for Cambodia’s littlest citizens.

These key accomplishments for Cambodia are powerful milestones for PATH’s longstanding commitment to turn a little-known vaccine from China into an internationally approved, affordable, and accessible tool to fight JE.

Your support helps make that possible! Thank you.

She’s very brave! Getting an immunization shot can sometimes feel a little scary. But with the help of PATH—and dedicated partners like you—more brave children (like this little girl in Laos) are getting the quick pinch that will give them lifelong protection from Japanese encephalitis.

Thank you for standing with us this year as we continue to work with countries and partners to roll the vaccine out to millions of children at risk while ensuring that it remains safe, effective, and available.

With your support, we’ll reach even more families in 2016 and for years to come.

Here’s to a happy—and healthy—New Year!

Behind-the-scenes in global immunization

It’s been a tremendous season! With your support, PATH’s Japanese encephalitis (JE) vaccine team has been hard at work in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal—and other JE-affected countries.  Together, we’re working behind the scenes, and in several arenas, to bring lifesaving vaccination to every child at risk.

Why? Because, as you know, the work of getting vaccines to children begins long before the quick pinch of the shot. It takes scientific research, national and global policies that support vaccines, regulatory approvals, safety measures, shipping and storage infrastructure, trusting relationships with governments and communities, and much more.

With your support, PATH is continuing to build that foundations to bring JE vaccines to more children worldwide. For example:

  • In June, we met with government leaders from a broad swath of countries interested in introducing or expanding the use of the JE vaccine, including Bangladesh and Indonesia.

We presented scientific evidence for JE vaccine efficacy and safety, discussed costs and logistics, and continued building the strong partnerships necessary to introduce the vaccine in even more regions and countries.

  • In Vietnam, and other countries, we supported leaders to apply for funding from global groups—unlocking new opportunities for national immunization efforts.
  • In China, we continued to support the manufacturer of the most commonly used vaccine to continue safe, consistent, and high-quality production.
  • In addition, we helped to expand vaccination campaigns in Laos and Cambodia. In April alone, Laos launched a JE campaign reaching 1.5 million children between the ages of one and 15.

And this is just the beginning! Whether behind-the-scenes or in the spotlight, PATH is helping JE reach more children.

It all adds up. With your support, we’re moving closer than ever to a world where every child can grow up without the fear of Japanese encephalitis.

Thank you!
