Otaigbe II


Background: Childhood vaccination is a fundamental human right and a core component of successful primary care. It has positive benefits on population health as it reduces the burden and costs associated with infectious diseases.

Main Body: Despite the immense benefits of childhood vaccination, vaccine coverage remains poor in many Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) due to several barriers. Examples of these barriers include parental misperceptions about vaccine safety, poor vaccine distribution networks and insufficient funding for childhood vaccination programs. It is therefore necessary to design suitable and effective strategies to overcome these barriers.

Conclusion: This narrative review article discusses effective strategies to improve vaccine coverage in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs).
