The demographic impact of increased immunisation: an initial evaluation

Diamond, I., Gaminiratne, K.H.W., Matthews, Z., McDonald, J.W. and Streatfield, K. (1991) The demographic impact of increased immunisation: an initial evaluation In Proceedings of Demographic and Health Surveys World Conference. vol. 2, Institute for Resource Development/Macro International., pp. 475-504.

The 1985 measles campaign in Ghana and the earlier Sri Lankan neonatal tetanus programme are chosen for the focus of analysis
