A cost-effectiveness analysis of a 10-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine in children in six Latin American countries

BACKGROUND: A recently developed 10-valent pneumococcal non-typeable H influenzae protein D-conjugate vaccine (PHiD-CV) is expected to afford protection against more than two thirds of isolates causing IPD in children in Latin America, and also against acute otitis media caused by both Spn and NTHi.
