Intensified Mission Indradhanush 5.0 will be conducted in three phases across the country. The first phase will run from August 7 to 12, the second phase from September 11 to 16, and the third phase from October 9 to 14.

Dr Ananias Sangma, in charge of the Hahim State Dispensary, stated, “During the program, eight babies and three pregnant women were vaccinated who may have missed Measles-Rubella vaccines, DPT booster, or OPV booster doses.”

In addition to the vaccination campaign, DC Keerthi Jalli also launched a mobile app named ‘U-Win’ portal. The platform aims to facilitate the registration and vaccination of every pregnant woman, record their delivery outcomes, register newborn deliveries, administer birth doses, and record all vaccination events.

DC Keerthi Jalli emphasised the significance of the program in remote areas like Hahim, saying, “I chose to launch the program district-wise because I wanted to assess the health conditions of the women and children in this area.”
