Measles vaccination for children

Measles is highly contagious diseases that killed nearly 115,000 children worldwide in 2014, which could have been prevented with measles immunization. In this program, Takeda is targeting approximately 40 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America with plans to immunize 5.4 million children with measles vaccine over 10 years in cooperation with the United Nations Foundation. Takeda has positioned Vaccines as a core therapeutic area, and is actively engaged in the development and sales of vaccines in response to the most serious challenges in global public health. This program is therefore closely aligned with our business activities.
