Summary

Seva Mandir organizes camps to provide Immunization in remote areas not serviced by State Health Facilities. The Immunization covers 6 key diseases.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The prevalent rates for complete immunization is around 5%. This results in high mortality rates. Seva Mandir's intervention has raised to 37% and continued intervention can raise this further. The intervention targets tribal families in remote areas of south Rajasthan. The focus group is children in 0-2 years age group, and pregnant women.

How will this project solve this problem?

Organisation of camps (12 camps on a monthly basis over 1 year per hamlet); Ensuring reliable (timely, correct frequency) immunization, make immunization a cultural norm. Each camp targets roughly 30 persons. Camps are in multiples of 15 hamlets.

Potential Long Term Impact

Reduction in mortality rates; Immunisation against Tuberculosis/ Tetanus/ Measles/ Diphtheria/ Polio and Pertusis/ Immunisation becomes a norm.
