Working in some of the most challenging operating environments, IFRC is dedicated to supporting the efforts of Red Cross Red Crescent (RCRC) National Societies to reach the world’s most vulnerable with life-saving vaccines. Immunization is a critical entry point for primary health care and investing in immunization saves lives, strengthens health systems, ensures health security and advances universal health coverage.
More children are being immunized than ever before, but the last mile still needs our attention. In the past decade, several challenges have limited the full life-saving impact of vaccines.
As its core mandate, RCRC prioritizes healthy and resilient communities. Life course immunization is the foundation of healthy communities.
RCRC immunization work is global. Projects utilize tailored approaches that are community driven and context specific.
