Strengthening routine immunization services and sustainable financing for immunization

Immunization Programs for Healthy Children

Immunization is an essential and cost-effective way to save children's lives. In the developing world, immunization prevents about three million child deaths each year. Yet despite the considerable achievements of immunization programs, wider and more equitable use of existing vaccines could prevent an additional two million child deaths annually.

To protect children born every day, health systems must have the ongoing capacity to provide effective, timely and sustainable vaccination services. The IMMUNIZATIONbasics project assists governments and non-governmental organizations to strengthen the planning, management, implementation and financing of their routine immunization programs.
