This visualization was developed as part of the Mapping diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus vaccine coverage in Africa, 2000-2016: … Continued

Mapping Diphtheria-Pertussis-Tetanus Vaccine Coverage in Africa, 2000–2016: A Spatial and Temporal Modelling Study

Background Routine childhood vaccination is among the most cost-effective, successful public health interventions available. Amid substantial investments to expand vaccine delivery throughout Africa and strengthen administrative reporting systems, most countries still require robust measures of local routine vaccine coverage and changes in geographical inequalities over time. Methods This analysis drew from 183 surveys done between … Continued
