This report gives a summary of the pilot introduction of Vi polysaccharide typhoid vaccine in Nepal through a tourism sector vaccination campaign. The Vi-based Vaccines for Asia (VIVA) Initiative, part of IVI's Typhoid Program, helped to coordinate pilot immunization campaigns in two sectors in Nepal - schools and the tourism industry - in order to accelerate the introduction of the Vi polysaccharide vaccine in high-risk areas.
