Explorations of Inequality: Childhood Immunization

This report takes a detailed look at the current status of childhood immunization in ten countries—Afghanistan, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Uganda—that together account for more than 70 percent of children who do not get a full course of basic vaccines. The report identified factors associated with immunization coverage and includes a multi-country assessment on the similarities and differences between countries. The findings show how a child’s likelihood of being vaccinated is affected by compounding advantage or vulnerability and provides insight into how policies, programs, and practices can be targeted to promote universal childhood immunization coverage.
