Let’s talk about vaccines! A community-driven solution description to reduce vaccine drop-out.

Vaccines help people of all ages live longer, healthier lives, preventing between 3.5-5 million deaths every year. Despite this success, vaccine coverage has dropped in recent years due to disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic, with 25 million children not completing their recommended immunizations in 20211. In Gile and Namarroi Districts in Mozambique, where VillageReach conducted our study, nearly 20% of children who start routine childhood immunizations don’t complete them.
