Immunisation - Brochure

The establishment of routine immunisation against the major childhood diseases for all children before their first birthday will ensure that: • infant and child mortality rates will be reduced; • instances of physical and mental disorders in children will be reduced; • healthier children will achieve more at school; • the quality of primary health services will be improved.

For Turkey, routine immunisation for every child will mean that;
• the country will achieve measles–free status;
• the fourth Millennium Development Goal — to reduce child mortality — will be met;
• the current generation of children will grow up to be happier, healthier adults who will contribute their best to the economy.
