The Immunization Agenda 2030 (IA2030) is an ambitious global strategy to maximize the lifesaving impact of vaccines. IA2030 aims to halve the number of children who completely miss out on essential vaccines - also known as zero dose children, achieve 500 introductions of new or under-used vaccines in low- and middle-income countries, and achieve 90% coverage for key life-saving vaccines. Achieving those could help save more than 50 million lives.
Immunization is critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Immunization reaches more people than any other health and social service, making it the foundation of primary health care systems and a key driver toward universal health coverage. This makes immunization essential to SDG3: to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
