Abstract: We conducted a cross sectional survey of 3163 women and men in six Asian countries to examine willingness for children and adults to be vaccinated against shigellosis and other forms of dysentery. The six sites were clustered into three regions for ease of comparison. The regions are: Northeast Asia (China), Southeast Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia) and South Asia (Bangladesh and Pakistan). We used multiple logistic regression to identify region-specific models for vaccination willingness for both adults and children. A vaccine to protect against dysentery, if available would be very much in demand throughout the three Asian regions for children. For adults, the responses indicate that vaccine uptake by adults will vary. A large proportion of respondents in all regions, specifically in China, do not perceive themselves at risk yet still consider a shigellosis vaccine desirable. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd.
