RAISING AWARENESS OF PAEDIATRIC PNEUMOCOCCAL INFECTION AND DISEASE (RAPPID)
 

“Launched in May 2002, and directed by a group of healthcare professionals and parents, the RAPPID campaign was set up to address the dangerously low profile of the disease by raising awareness of pneumo disease.” (http://web.archive.org/web/20021206104504/www.rappid.org.uk/public/what_is/whatwedo.html; accessed 9/20/03)

“Rappid was set up and funded by the drug company Wyeth, which has developed a vaccine against [paediatric pneumococcal infections and] diseases.” (The Independent, 5/30/03)
