Enjeux mondiaux

This cross-cutting section examines the linkages between large-scale current issues – such as humanitarian emergencies and antibiotic resistance – and vaccination, and illustrates how vaccination can either work to prevent the escalation of these threats, or to protect critically vulnerable groups from their negative impacts. Inclusion of a subject in the “Global Issues” section of VoICE reflects a current high level of interest from global health and immunization advocates, and these areas are often fondly referred to as “Hot Topics” by the VoICE team. Currently, Global Issues looks at the role of vaccination in slowing the spread of antimicrobial resistance, in supporting health security, and in protecting those living in settings of conflict or humanitarian crisis plagued by conditions that exacerbate disease transmission and mortality. Except, in French.
