Your editorial, "Weapons of mass protection" (Nat. Med. 9, 239; 2003), highlights a serious issue confronting the developing countries of the world. Pharmaceutical companies in the developed world do not find vaccine production to be an economically viable proposition.

Those who live in developing countries have the dubious distinction of being afflicted with both. In particular, children below the poverty line face grave diseases ranging from measles to HIV, without adequate protection.
