In developing countries, research shows a strong link between the education of mothers and immunisation of children against preventable diseases – more education, more vaccinations. However, there is evidence that the relationship between education and immunisation in developed countries reverses.

In poor countries, better education for women sees more children immunised but the trend reverses in rich countries.
