Top-rated charity



Suvita sends text message reminders to caregivers in India to remind them to get their children vaccinated. It also builds a network of ambassadors who share information with new parents in their community about local vaccine clinics.

What problem is Suvita working on?

Globally, one child dies every minute from a vaccine-preventable disease. This is because 19 million children fail to receive their basic vaccinations before their first birthday each year.

Vaccination coverage varies widely between and within countries, so certain regions bear a much greater load than others when it comes to vaccine-preventable diseases. Half of the world’s undervaccinated children are in India, despite India’s early contributions to vaccine research and development, its current position as a leading global producer of vaccines, and significant progress in strengthening vaccine supply over recent years due to government investment.

What does Suvita do?

Suvita’s mission is to “work towards a world in which every child has access to their basic vaccinations."

To achieve, this, Suvita:

  • Works with local NGOs, health centres, and the state government to send text message reminders to bring infants to free, government-provided vaccination clinics.
  • Invites opinion leaders to be immunisation ambassadors, and keeps them updated with details of local monthly immunisation clinics.

Suvita reports having sent SMS reminders to over 200,000 caregivers across seven states in India.
