This paper suggests an approach towards isolating the demographic effects of recent improved immunisation programmes in two developing countries: Sri Lanka and Ghana, and considers the implications of the resulting reductions in mortality for the early 21st century populations in those countries. Economic stagnation in both countries over the last decade has provided a background against which the mortality reductions attributable to health improvements may be isolated more easily. The 1985 measles campaign in Ghana and the earlier Sri Lankan neonatal tetanus programme are chosen for the focus of analysis
