Abstract:

This report aims to present comparative survey findings related to childhood vaccination against the six vaccine preventable diseases. In addition to overall vaccination coverage rates, information collected also allows analyses that can be used to identify subgroups of children who are at high risk of not being vaccinated or of receiving suboptimal vaccination services. Analyses are based on DHS data from 28 countries between 1990 and 1994.
