Mission Indradhanush: Indias immunisation growth rate since launch rises to four per cent
26 December 2018 Current Affairs: In December 2014, Mission Indradhanush was launched for a targeted approach to immunisation in India, in a bid to change the tardy annual growth rate of 1 per cent.
Between 2014 and 2018, India’s annual immunisation growth rate has risen to 4 per cent, with an unprecedented 16 per cent rise in the number of fully immunised children.
The word Indradhanush was chosen to represent the seven vaccines that were subsequently included in the Universal Immunization Program against these seven diseases - tuberculosis, poliomyelitis, hepatitis B, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus and measles.
