Streptococcus pneumoniae remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. It causes a variety of diseases, ranging from mild otitis media to invasive disease, including sepsis and meningitis.

Colonization of the nasopharynx is a prerequisite for invasive pneumococcal disease and also an important step in the development of antimicrobial resistance.

It can cause severe invasive disease, including meningitis, pneumonia and bacteraemia, and non- invasive disease, including otitis media.
