Onference on the pathogenesis and prevention of pneumonia in children in developing regions. Bellagio (ITA), 1989-08-21.
Measles is a major cause of acute lower respiratory infection (ALRI) in developing countries.
Hospital and community-based studies of ALRI have found that measles accounts for 6%-21% of the morbidity and 8%-93% of the mortality due to ALRI.
Although live attenuated measles vaccine is one of the most effective vaccines in use today, measles has not been controlled in many parts of the world, primarily because the levels of vaccine coverage required to interrupt measles transmission have not been achieved.
In addition, in some areas, a large percentage of cases of measles occur in infants who are younger than the age recommended for vaccination.
