Advancing Vaccine Formulations of Importance to Developing Countries Using New and Existing Adjuvant Technologies

The positive impact of adjuvants on vaccination can be functional and practical. A handful of adjuvants are currently licensed for human vaccination, and a number of new adjuvants have reached advanced development stages. However, access to these and other adjuvants is limited. Presented at the 2012 Conference on Modern Vaccines Adjuvants and Delivery Systems, this poster outlines PATH’s work to expand access to proprietary and non-proprietary adjuvants as well as relevant formulations technologies to facilitate their successful exploration and use by product development partnerships and developing-country vaccine manufacturers.

An Advocacy Strategy for Adoption and Dissemination of the WHO Policy on TB Infection Control in Health Care Facilities, Congregate Settings, and Households

In 2010, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a new policy to guide activities for controlling tuberculosis (TB) infection. This report provides guidance on advocacy for political and financial support for TB infection control from donors and countries, widespread adoption of the WHO policy, and incorporation of it into national and local policies. The report also addresses advocacy for linkages with civil society organizations in the field to ensure demand for and implementation of the WHO policy to protect health workers, patients, and communities from TB transmission.

Affordable Point-of-Care Viral RNA Specimen Processing for Low-Resource Settings

PATH conducted a detailed cost analysis in Nicaragua to understand the costs of each step required to perform viral load testing, beginning at the patient’s house and continuing to when the viral load testing result is actually communicated back to the patient’s antiretroviral therapy care provider. Using this information, PATH has developed a low-cost technology to extract HIV viral RNA at the point of care and stabilize it, removing the need for cold chain preservation of the specimen. Presented at: AACC 42nd Annual Oak Ridge Conference, April 22, 2010; San Jose, CA.
