"Bhutan and Maldives have eliminated measles and have become the first in WHO South-East Asia Region to do so ahead of the 2020 Regional target. They launched their Expanded Program on Immunization in 1979 and 1976 and have not reported any case of indigenous measles since 2012 and 2009 respectively. This program is based on four key approaches:
- Achieving and maintaining at least 95% vaccination coverage with two doses of measles and rubella vaccine through routine and supplementary immunization
- Developing and sustaining a sensitive case based surveillance that meets recommended performance indicators
- Developing and maintaining an accredited measles and rubella laboratory network
- Strengthening support and linkages for these strategies"
