HOW YOU CAN USE THIS MATERIAL:
Immunisation programme managers and other relevant stakeholders can gain valuable insights into the challenges and determining factors of zero-dose children and specific strategies and interventions to address them.
The Immunization Agenda 2030 aims to half the number of ZD children by 2030, and the new GAVI 5.0 strategy envisages health systems to sustainably reach all ZD and under-immunized children and their communities with the full range of vaccines as the first step toward providing integrated primary healthcare (PHC) services. In line with these efforts, the Government of India has prioritized efforts to reach its estimated 1.6 million zero-dose (ZD) children. This in-depth analysis of ZD children in India was undertaken to identify critical determining factors and the interventions necessary to address existing challenges.
