The mission aims to cover all those children by 2020 who are either unvaccinated, or are partially vaccinated against seven vaccine preventable diseases.

It includes diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, polio, tuberculosis, measles and hepatitis B.

It aims to fully immunize children under the age of two years and pregnant women with all available vaccines.

The Mission is being implemented in 201 high focus districts in the country in the first phase which has nearly 50% of all unvaccinated or partially vaccinated children.

The campaign is part of the Universal Immunisation Programme by 2020.

The Ministry will be technically supported by WHO, UNICEF, Rotary International and other donor partners.
