This GIS data is crucial in ensuring that polio vaccination campaigns reach the total populations of at-risk individuals. In the past, vaccination campaigns relied on old maps and data, which left thousands of people unaccounted for, and left them out of the campaign plans. However with more robust maps like these, planning and executing vaccination campaigns has become easier. Now teams can identify missed settlements, map accurate routes for vaccine and other vital health commodities delivery.
