Sending SMS reminders to mothers in India to help them remember when it is time to get their child vaccinated

a Givewell project – EIN 208625442 charitysciencehealth.com

Vaccine reminders cost only pennies per family reached: sending our full series of text message costs only $0.03, and acquiring phone numbers through existing data collection systems costs less than a dollar. GiveWell’s calculations suggest that vaccine reminders have similar cost-effectiveness to the most cost-effective interventions currently known.

Only 65% of Indian children receive the full schedule of vaccinations, and the country has more than one third of all unvaccinated children worldwide. As a result of this immunization gap, an estimated 1.2 million people in India die yearly from vaccine-preventable diseases. Charity Science Health’s mission is to expand immunization coverage across India by implementing an intervention proven to be effective: sending reminders to mothers when their children are due for vaccination.
