"Today we'e on the verge of starting a vaccination campaign against pneumococcal disease in Yida refugee camp (in South Sudan). What we would like to do is actually vaccinate all the children under five against pneumococcal disease but we simply can't afford to do that at the prices we're being made to pay for the pneumococcal vaccine." —Dr. Greg Elder, Deputy Director of MSF Operations Children in crisis need access to newer vaccines to protect them from life-threatening illnesses.
