Preventing Respiratory Syncytial Virus in Children in France: A Narrative Review of the Importance of a Reinforced Partnership Between Parents, Healthcare Professionals, and Public Health Authorities

Prévention du Virus Respiratoire Syncytial chez les Enfants en France : Une Revue Narrative de l’importance de nouer un fort partenariat entre Parents, Professionnels de Santé et Autorités de Santé Publique

Abstract

The highly contagious respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is responsible for up to approximately 50,000 hospitalisations during each RSV season in children aged under 5 years in France, with the burden greatest in infants younger than 1 year who were born at term. There is a need for a strategy to universally protect young children from RSV infection, and thereby reduce the pressure that RSV places every year on RSV-infected children, their parents, and French healthcare systems. Potential strategies currently undergoing clinical investigation include passive immunisation via maternal vaccination or administration of long-acting monoclonal antibodies at or soon after birth, followed by vaccination later in infancy or childhood. An ongoing partnership and collaboration between parents, public health authorities, and frontline primary healthcare will need to be reinforced once these new RSV prevention strategies are available, to facilitate their use and ensure that all children receive adequate protection from the start of their first RSV season.
