Dengue fever affects up to 100 million people every year, mainly children. It kills about 20,000 – and they die from what is known as dengue shock syndrome. The hunt is now on for a vaccine. Sanofi pasteur and GSK, two of the biggest drug companies in the world, have been working on a dengue fever vaccine for some time. We go to Thailand and Vietnam to see what progress is being made.
