Reaching Zero Dose Children

It’s estimated that 12.4 million children around the world haven’t received any vaccines. These “Zero-dose children” have a higher risk of dying of preventable causes than immunised children, with higher cognitive abilities and better education outcomes.

Using a simple animation, which we created in English, Kiswahili, French and Arabic, in partnership with Medical Aid Films for CORE Group. Health professionals can share this critical message that no child should be left behind with life-saving vaccines.

This animation is an advocacy tool that health sector actors can use to mobilize Departments and Ministries of Health at the country level to reach zero-dose children in their country-specific global health programs.
