NPH Helps Save Lives Through Immunizations

World Immunization Week April 24-30, 2018

Immunization saves millions of lives and is widely recognized as one of the world’s most successful and cost-effective health interventions.

  • In 2017, NPH home clinics administered 2,566 vaccines to children living in the homes.
  • The NPH vaccination program in our home clinics covers children and youths in the home with 85-98% of their basic vaccines. By basic vaccines we consider: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Hepatitis B.
  • Governments supply some of these vaccines, but NPH supplies over half of the vaccinations provided to children using either donations or purchasing them to increase coverage.
  • In 2017, St. Damien Pediatric Hospital in Haiti provided 10,760 vaccinations to the public.
