The Union Government of India launched 15 day multi-media campaign to educate the public about the importance of Immunization, ahead of implementing the health programme ‘Mission Indradhanush‘ in April. The ambitious mission aims to cover all children in India who are either unvaccinated or are partially vaccinated against seven vaccine preventable diseases by 2020.  The diseases are tetanus, hepatitis B, diphtheria, whooping cough, tuberculosis, measles and hepatitis B, and Polio. 

The campaign was launched by Union Health Minister JP Nadda in New Delhi. The mission Indra Dhanush will also provide vaccination against Japanese Encephalitis and Haemophilus influenza Type B in selected districts. The purposeful campaign involves advertisements, workshops, and other activities to reach out the people and also to create awareness about the benefits of immunisation.
