The Union Health Ministry plans to achieve full immunisation coverage under its 'Mission Indradhanush' by 2018 which would cover a total of 118 districts, including 52 districts of north east states and 17 in urban areas. This phase would be focused on urban areas, one of the gaps of the programme earlier. This will be done through mapping of all under-served population in urban areas and need-based deployment of ANMs (auxiliary nurse midwife).
4 phases have been completed in 528 districts across the country. More than 2.47 crore children and around 67 lakh pregnant women have been vaccinated under the programme so far.
This phase would have more focus on convergence with other ministries/departments, especially women and child development, panchayati raj, urban development among others.
