This chapter examines the vaccine sector in India during the 1970s. It explains that while there was strong demand from the international market it was not sufficient to ensure the success of the local vaccine industry. It analyzes the technological characteristics of several subareas of Indian vaccine expertise and the disparities between capabilities and domestic health access. This chapter highlights the significant reduction in the number of public-sector suppliers of the Indian Expanded Program on Immunization and private suppliers during the period from 1971 to 2001.

Keywords:   vaccine industry, India, domestic health access, public-sector suppliers, Expanded Program on Immunization, vaccine expertise, private sector suppliers
