23 November 2014 – Yemen conducted a national measles/rubella vaccination campaign from 9 to 20 November 2014, in which more than 11 million children from 9 months to 15 years were vaccinated. In spite of political unrest and insecurity, vaccination teams achieved a coverage rate of 98%, which included children from high-risk groups, such as refugees and internally displaced persons. Effective partnership was crucial to successful implementation of the campaign with the GAVI Alliance supporting 80% of operational costs and the cost of the vaccine and many other partners on the ground providing support to the campaign.
