What is Vacxigen all about?
Vacxigen’s business is about ‘Preventive Healthcare’ through vaccination.
‘Preventive Healthcare’ comprises measures taken for disease prevention as opposed to disease treatment. Every year millions of people die of preventable deaths. Leading causes of deaths include cardiovascular diseases, chronic respiratory disease, unintentional injuries, diabetes, and certain infectious diseases.
There are many approaches to disease prevention:
• Regular health check-ups
• Perform disease screening even when healthy
• Identify risk factors for a disease
• Stay up-to-date with immunizations and boosters.
Vacxigen will focus on immunisation and offer a wide range of vaccines for paediatric and adult population. A number of life-threatening infectious diseases can be prevented through vaccination. While vaccination for children is well understood and practiced, the idea that adults too can be vaccinated surprises many. With the environment around us subjected to increasing stress due to demands of development and healthcare costs rising by the day in part due to rising antibiotic resistance, it has become essential to prevent diseases before it strikes and vaccination is one way to keep infectious diseases at bay. Vacxigen will aid in this endeavor.
