The Board Chair, Vaccine Alliance, Okonjo-Iweala, shared her personal experience while making the announcement in Vientiane, Laos, said her son almost died from the disease while growing up.

According to Punch
She said, “Typhoid fever imposes a dramatic burden on children in the poorest nations affecting countries, communities and families.

“This disease has long been eliminated from most industrialised nations, but it is still a serious threat in developing countries where the vast majority of deaths occur.

“I lost my cousin and nearly lost my son because of typhoid. This vaccine will be a lifesaver for millions of children, especially those living without access to clean water or sanitation.”


  1. None of these diseases will come near me or my family in Jesus name.

  2. Hmm.
    Typhoid is deadly.
    May we not experience all these deadly diseases iJmn.

  3. I never knew these diseases kill till a few years ago. May God continue to keep us safe!

  4. May God continually protect us from any form of diseases.We also have a role to play by keeping a clean and safe environment conducive for all.
