The launch of the Global Immunization Strategy comes more than a year after the start of the pandemic, while basic health services are still suffering from severe disruptions in about 90 percent of the countries of the world, according to a survey conducted by the World Health Organization. Berkeley, in a statement, “Millions of children around the world are at risk of not receiving essential vaccines, as the current pandemic threatens to wipe out two decades of progress in routine, structured immunization.”

The volume of disruptions in health services decreased in the countries in general. In 2020, about half of basic health services are disrupted on average, while in the first three months of 2021, the proportion was just over a third.

The new strategy, launched on the occasion of Global Immunization Week, aims to prevent 50 million deaths worldwide, 75 per cent of them in the poorest countries, by strengthening lifelong immunization systems. By 2030, the program aims to achieve 90 per cent coverage of vaccines. Essential during childhood and adolescence, and cutting the number of children completely deprived of vaccines in half during the same period.

It also aims to introduce or re-provide new vaccines in some countries, or vaccines that are underutilized, such as the “Covid-19”, “rotavirus” that causes diarrhea in children, or the papilloma virus.

“To fully recover from Covid-19 and fight epidemics in the future, we will need to ensure that routine immunization is a priority as we strive to reach children who are not receiving any of the routine vaccinations. “.

The provision of vaccines and other supplies is also necessary to immunize children, but due to the disruptions associated with the Corona pandemic, UNICEF was only able to provide just over two billion doses of vaccines worldwide during 2020, compared to 2.29 billion doses in a year. 2019.

Because of the gaps in achieving universal vaccination coverage, measles outbreaks have recently been reported in countries such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Pakistan and Yemen, and international organizations expect more epidemics to emerge elsewhere.

UNICEF Director-General Henrietta Fore said the situation is extremely worrying because “even before the pandemic, there were worrying signs that we were beginning to lose our gains in fighting preventable diseases affecting children, as 20 million children had not received basic vaccinations. The epidemic has exacerbated the poor situation. Indeed, millions of other children have been left unvaccinated, and now that we all understand the importance of vaccines, it is imperative that we conserve this energy to help each child compensate for any delay in immunization coverage against measles, polio and other diseases.
