40. World Health Organization and UNICEF. Review of National Immunization Coverage 1980-2002. Occupied Palestinian Territory: WHO and UNICEF, 2003: 7pp.

This report gives a review of immunization coverage in the West Bank and Gaza Strip from the year 1980 till the year 2002. No national coverage is available before 1990. At that time it is only available for Gaza, since the vaccine was not given in West Bank. Data before 1995 is not included because the Palestinian authority in the West Bank and Gaza Strip was only created in 1995. Since 1995 coverage is at a very high level confirmed by survey data (MICS 1996). Coverage levels are over 90%.
