SA, Mexico, Push for Locally-Made Vaccines

The 67th WHA hears that Mexico and South Africa want to start producing their own vaccines to boost their immunisation programmes

The 67th World Health Assembly (WHA) in Switzerland has heard that Mexico and South Africa want to start producing their own vaccines to boost their immunisation programmes.

The countries need the World Health Organisation (WHO) and other international agencies to help expand their local manufacturing capacity, a move they hope will lower the cost of vaccines and make their supply more reliable.

Health Minister, Aaron Motsoaledi, states that, "We want the WHO and other international agencies to empower us to produce our vaccines."
