Every year 90 lakh infants in India do not complete their immunisation schedule. Charity Science Health makes sure children across India get vaccinated by giving mothers a mobile nudge when their children are due for immunisation. Text message reminders are a proven, low-cost, and scalable solution. After enrolling 3 lakh families, they now leverage government infrastructure to automatically enrol families for reminders when mothers in Bihar and Maharashtra attend prenatal checkups with government nurses or deliver a child at government clinics.
