|About Universal Immunisation Programme:|
The Expanded Programme on Immunization was launched in 1978.
It was renamed as Universal Immunization Programme in 1985 when its reach was expanded beyond urban areas.
Universal Immunization Programme (UIP) is one of the largest public health programmes targeting close to 2.67 crore newborns and 2.9 crore pregnant women annually.
Under UIP, Immunization is provided free of cost against 12 vaccine-preventable diseases.
The two major milestones of UIP have been the elimination of polio in 2014 and maternal and neonatal tetanus elimination in 2015.
To speed up the coverage, Mission Indradhanush was planned and implemented to rapidly increase the full coverage to 90%.
