Stewart Cole is the head of the Pasteur Institute here in Paris, which spends its time researching and trying to tackle the spread of virus or disease.

Among other major issues is the battle to persuade some sceptics that vaccines, particularly nowadays for measles, are safe. Stewart Cole spoke to us for today's Perspective.
