Vaccinating Every Child: Promising Strategies for Reaching Zero-Dose Children in Mali & Uganda (Part 2 of 2)

Date and Time:

In the pursuit of global immunization equity, identifying and reaching zero-dose (ZD) children, under-immunized (UI) children, and missed communities remains a complex challenge. Reaching these children with life-saving vaccines requires clear and accurate data about who they are and where they live.

This Zero-Dose Learning Hub webinar was the second in a two-part series on using high-quality data to better reach ZD children, UI children, and missed communities. During this webinar, immunization experts from Mali and Uganda shared their experiences using innovative, data-grounded methods to reach ZD and UI children and missed communities.
