After decades of determination, India finally was declared Polio free by WHO in 2014. Immunization against common childhood diseases has been an integral component of mother and child health services in India since adoption of the primary health care approach in 1978 being reinforced by the Declaration of Health Policy in 1983.


The UIP in India targets 27 million infants and 30 million pregnant women every year. Since the launch  of National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) in 2005, more than 15 billion dollars have been provided to the states in addition to their budgets, for strengthening health systems and infrastructure with key focus on reproductive and child health, including immunization.
