The World Health Organization Qualifies Ceravix For Prequalification

Ceravix will become the main component in the fight against cervical cancer in developing nations.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has granted Cervarix prequalification (GlaxoSmithKlein’s cervical cancer vaccine).  This decision will enable UN agencies and GAVI Alliance to purchase and utilize the vaccine in union with developing countries.

According to WHO more than 80 percent of the 280,000 cervical cancer deaths a year exist in developing, resource-lacking nations.  Due to the deficiency of screening resources and the rampancy of HIV/AIDS, poor women of developing nations are increasingly susceptible to cervical cancer.

Ceravix’s journey to headline the WHO’s crusade against cervical cancer in developing nations, began nearly two years ago.  GSK submitted Ceravix for WHO prequalification in September 2007, a short week after European Medicines Agency approved the vaccine.  

GSK has built an impressive reputation as a result of their dedication to making vaccines available to those in developing nations, which includes 10 WHO prequalification.  Jean Stephenne, president of GSK Biologicals echoes the company’s humanitarian sentiments as he states: “Ceravix can save millions of women’s lives throughout the world.”  Recently, GSK received another extended WHO prequalification for their vaccine Rotarix, thereby making rotavirus vaccines available to children.

GSK is participating in several interactive demonstration vaccine projects aimed to alleviate the challenges posed by introducing Ceravix to developing nations.  Ceravix has donated 100,000 doses of the HPV vaccine in an attempt to create implementation fluidity.  Of these projects PATH is leading Uganda and India into what CEO and President Christopher J. Elias believes is a “strengthening of healthcare systems and [a] mobilization of local communities.”
