Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) had launched Mission Indradhanush on 25th December 2014 with the aim of expanding immunization coverage to all children across India by year 2020.
The Mission Indradhanush, depicting seven colours of the rainbow, targets to immunize all children against seven vaccine preventable diseases namely Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus, Childhood Tuberculosis, Polio, Hepatitis B and Measles.
In addition to this, vaccines for JE (Japanese Encephalitis) and Hib (Haemophilus influenzae type B) are also being provided in selected states. Immunization is the key to protect children from life threatening conditions that are preventable.
