With an aim to reduce illness and deaths caused by measles and rubella, the Ministry of Health and Population is conducting measles-rubella vaccination campaign from September 17 in all the the western region districts and the districts from mid western region which were not covered in phase 1. Children ranging from nine months to 15 years will be vaccinated at booths where health personnel will be mobilized during the immunization campaign that will last for a week. With support from UNICEF Nepal, we have developed this innovative system to publish immunization coverage report on real time basis. Health workers have been trained to send coverage data using Mobile SMS messages which is then aggregated in a central server and updated in this website in real time. As campaign will proceed throughout the country, data will be available for respective regions and districts simultaneously.
