 Meeting Local Needs in Global Times Case of Universal Vaccines in India
This article analyses access to stable and affordable supply of vaccines that are needed for mass immunisation programmes, during the post liberalisation period and new IPR regimes. The article points out that the Indian experience of sudden shift from public sector to private sector and preference to public private partnership models at the cost of public sector has not ensured access to universal vaccines to Indian children. The lack of good governance, strict regulation and an evidence-based rational national vaccine policy are major stumbling blocks on the road to a sustainable, affordable stable universal vaccine supply in India.
