Highlights

The remarkable increase in vaccination coverage levels around the world over the past three decades is a success story to be celebrated. It is a story of what can be achieved through strong political commitment and leadership, adequate and reliable financing that enables countries to plan long term, and efficient coordination between country governments and development partners.

Yet the stagnation of around 85 per cent coverage globally and uneven progress across countries is an alarm bell that must be answered by us all, both swiftly and collectively.
