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