Progress Towards Global Immunization Goals

Recently prepared by the WHO, this slideshow summarizes global progress in vaccination efforts for DTP3, Polio, Measles, MNT, HepB, and Hib3. It also gives information on which countries have national plans for immunization, which countries include vitamin A supplements with their immunization services, and which countries incorporate injection safety in their immunization services. It concludes with a global immunization score card.
