The driving force behind Alma Sana is that children in developing countries are much more likely to survive childhood if they receive immunizations in a timely manner. However, several factors make it less likely that these children will successfully complete an immunization program, such as parents not knowing how many vaccines their child should receive, which vaccinations have already been administered, when and where the next vaccination is scheduled, or the exact age of their child.
