BRAC's RDP (Rural Development Programme) targets the poorest of the poor with special emphasis on improving the health and socioeconomic condition of women and children. It is hypothesized that BRAC's economic and non-economic inputs (like preventive health and nutrition intervention) through Essential Health Care (EHC) package will influence the health-seeking behaviour of the participant households with respect to accessing available immunization facilities for children. This paper attempts to explore the effect of BRAC's RDP-EHC interventions on changes in immunization coverage of the beneficiary households.
