21 GAVI-eligible countries have now introduced pneumococcal vaccines
Highlight contents: 

In December 2010, Nicaragua became the first GAVI-eligible country to introduce pneumococcal vaccine into its routine immunisation programme, less than a year after it was introduced in rich countries. Since then, 21 countries have introduced this life-saving tool. By 2015, GAVI and its partners aim to immunise 90 million children with pneumococcal vaccines in more than 50 countries.
