The Solution

Nearly all countries in the world have committed to eliminate measles. We have an effective, inexpensive combined vaccine that can stop measles and rubella.

For about $2, a child can be vaccinated against measles and rubella, making it one of the most cost-effective health interventions available.

Global progress against measles has been stunning. More than 3.86 billion doses of measles vaccine have been delivered to children in 88 countries with support from the Measles & Rubella Partnership.

Measles vaccination coverage is now 81% globally compared with 72% in 2001.

Since 2000 measles deaths are down by 83%.

The Measles vaccine has averted an estimated 56 million deaths since 2000. Learn more about the vaccine here.
