Project Details

The project in Mongolia will explore how the introduction of the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) into the routine immunisation programme in children has impacted adult respiratory disease in the country. It will also explore other risk factors for adult pneumonia including the impact of air pollution and will provide the Government of Mongolia with additional information regarding the full impact of PCV in the country.

Prior experience in public health, epidemiology or a related discipline and a high academic standard of achievement are required. An interest in international child health and vaccinology would be viewed positively.
