WHO names Vietnam a new global vaccine supplier

Monday, June 22, 2015

Vietnam has become the 37th country and the fifth in the Western Pacific meeting requirements to produce vaccines for the global market, the World Health Organization said.
A WHO statement released Sunday said it has officially recognized Vietnam’s vaccine supplies to be fit for worldwide use, after a grand review last April.
It said many developing countries can produce quality vaccines at affordable prices like Vietnam, but only a small number of them have invested in that capacity.
