The Philippines banned a government program, which involved immunizing children with Dengvaxia after releasing Sanofi's findings. The WHO Country Office said this position paper was "based on recommendations of the Strategic Group of Experts on Immunisation which met and published preliminary advice in mid-April 2016".

A statement from Sanofi said the long-term trial results highlighted "the complex nature" of dengue infection as it proposed a "label update" on the use of the vaccine.

Philippine health officials have ordered Sanofi to jerk its dengue vaccine off the market as the controversy over the health threat it poses to children continues to roil the country.

On the impact of issues surrounding the vaccine in Brazil and the Philippines, the spokesperson said, "Sanofi Pasteur has taken action to transparently share this new data with the health authorities in the countries where the vaccine is in use today or where it is now being considered for regulatory approval".

The WHO said on Monday it hoped to review safety data this month on Sanofi's dengue vaccine which the company said was approved in 19 countries and launched in 11.
