Trends in immunization coverage (global and regional)

DTP refers to the combined diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis vaccine. The percentage of children receiving three doses of DTP containing vaccine (DTP3) is an often used indicator of how well countries provide routine immunization services.

 

During 2012, global coverage for DTP3 was 83 per cent, an increase from 73 per cent in 2000 and from 20 per cent in 1980
