Infographic Description

We Need to Reach Every Child

In 2013, 21.8 million babies did not receive the 3rd doses of vaccinations needed to protect them against preventable but deadly diseases – that’s 1 out of every 5 babies unprotected.

70% of these babies live in only 10 countries: India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Vietnam, Mexico, South Africa and Kenya.

We can reach every child with all recommended life-saving vaccinations, no matter where he or she lives, by improving: health worker training and practices, caregiver knowledge and practices, vaccine supply and forecasting, vaccination sessions near communities, and using data to take action.
