Mission Indradhanush

punhGovernment of India launched the Universal Immunization Program (UIP) in 1985, one of the largest health programs of its kind in the world.Despite being operational for over 30 years, UIP has been able to fully immunize only 65% children in the first year of their life and the increase in coverage has stagnated in the past 5 years to an average of 1% every year.To strengthen and invigorate the program and achieve full immunization coverage for all children at a rapid pace, the Government of India launched Mission Indradhanush in December 2014.Mission Indradhanush will ensure that all children under the age of two years and pregnant women are fully immunized with all available vaccines.
