For every child, vaccination

Regional brief, State of the World’s Children 2023


Immunization is one of humanity’s most remarkable success stories. It has saved countless lives. Many more lives will be saved if the goals of the Immunization Agenda 2030 are achieved. The Eastern and Southern Africa region has experienced a decrease in immunization coverage. The COVID-19 pandemic brought even more setbacks, and children continue to miss critical vaccines. This global strategy aims for a world where “everyone, everywhere, at every age, fully benefits from vaccines for good health and well-being.”
