Seva Mandir organizes camps to provide immunization in remote areas not served by state health facilities. The immunization covers 6 key diseases.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The prevalent rates for complete immunization are around 5%. This results in high mortality rates. Seva Mandir's intervention has raised this to 37% and continued intervention can further increase it. The intervention targets poor tribal families in remote areas of southern Rajasthan. The target group is children under 2 years and pregnant women.
How will this project solve this problem?
Organization of camps (12 monthly camps a year per hamlet); ensuring appropriate (regular, timely) immunization; making immunization a cultural norm. Each camp targets roughly 30 people and covers 15 hamlets.
Potential Long Term Impact
Reduction in mortality rates; immunization against tuberculosis, tetanus, measles, diphtheria, polio and pertussis; making immunization the norm.
