We Need to Reach Every Child

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.
