Integrated Campaigns

Measles campaigns typically reach over 90 percent of all children, with much more than vaccine.

A measles campaign provides an opportunity to deliver other health services chosen by the Ministry of Health, based on country needs.

In 2021 alone, more than 150 million children received measles vaccination as part of 22 campaigns conducted in 18 countries. Of these, 11 countries combined at least one other beneficial child health intervention into measles or measles-rubella vaccine campaigns including vitamin A, deworming medication, and polio vaccinations.

Since 2001, the Measles & Rubella Partnership has supported the distribution of more than:

  • 41 million insecticide-treated bed nets for malaria prevention
  • 289 million doses of vitamin A
  • 207 million doses of polio vaccine
  • 144 million de-worming tablets

By offering multiple health care interventions, the Measles & Rubella Partnership increases community participation, is cost effective and addresses a variety of health problems.
