Data Officer

About Suvita

Suvita is an impact-driven startup nonprofit focused on increasing the uptake of routine childhood immunisations in India. We run two evidence-based programmes to boost attendance at vaccination appointments:

  1. Sending SMS reminders directly to new parents and caregivers, to help them remember when their child is due for a vaccination. 

  2. Identifying natural community influencers and supporting them to act as immunisation ambassadors. 


In partnership with the state governments in Bihar and Maharashtra, we have enrolled 600,000 families for SMS reminders. In addition, we have engaged 4,500 volunteer immunisation ambassadors, who we expect will connect with over 150,000 additional families to encourage and support them during their child’s vaccination journey. We estimate that our programmes to date will enable around 13,000 additional children to become fully vaccinated, saving roughly 150-200 lives so far.
