Reported National Level Stock-Outs of Home-Based Records—A Quiet Problem for Immunization Programmes That Needs Attention

, , ,
Global

Home-based records (HBRs) are an important tool for recording and communicating within primary healthcare service delivery. Unfortunately, HBRs are currently unable to fulfil their intended purpose in many communities either because the HBR is not functionally well-designed to serve its objectives, not made available, not fully adopted and/or not appropriately utilized by caregivers and/or health workers. This brief report describes the occurrence of nationally reported HBR stock-outs and HBR financing patterns during 2014 and 2015 across 195 countries reporting immunization system performance data to the World Health Organization and United Nations Children’s Fund.

Save the Children: Further, Faster, Fairer

, ,
Global

Progress in the coverage of immunisation services over the past decade has been impressive, with 86% of children globally now receiving basic vaccinations. However, there is cause for concern. Progress has recently slowed and the 2011–2020 Global Vaccine Action Plan is off-track. 19.4 million children under one year old – one in seven – are still excluded from the full benefits of immunisation. Further, Faster, Fairer shows that these excluded children are not evenly interspersed among other children who are being vaccinated. Instead they are concentrated in communities that are systematically excluded from progress.
