Abstract

The epidemiology of pneumococcal meningitis in the African ‘meningitis belt’ is poorly studied. In order to ensure an effective vaccination strategy and post-vaccination surveillance, the researchers examined the serotype distribution patterns of pneumococcal meningitis in Niger over the period 2003–2011.
