Challenge

The prevalent rates for complete immunization are around 5%. This results in high mortality rates. Seva Mandir's intervention has raised this to 37% and continued intervention can further increase it. The intervention targets poor tribal families in remote areas of southern Rajasthan. The target group is children under 2 years and pregnant women.

Solution

Organization of camps (12 monthly camps a year per hamlet); ensuring appropriate (regular, timely) immunization; making immunization a cultural norm. Each camp targets roughly 30 people and covers 15 hamlets.

Long-Term Impact

Reduction in mortality rates; immunization against tuberculosis, tetanus, measles, diphtheria, polio and pertussis; making immunization the norm.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
