Abstract

The importance of maternal and child health can be recognised from the inclusion of two goals Millennium Development Goals and later in Sustainable Development Goals also. Both the MDGs and SDGs focused on reducing mortality and improving health. One of most influential way to reduce child mortality is through child immunisation, as it reduces the risk of child death from vaccine preventable diseases. There is ample evidence in literature that dealt with all these aspects of child health and maternal mortality. Even after five years of Sustainable Development Goals the target achievement is not very satisfactory. On this background it is important to look back at the studies that offer an in-depth analysis of the aspects related to achieve the target of mortality reduction and health improvement. Therefore, this study gives a thorough description of the earlier studies under three segments namely, mother’s health, mother’s autonomy and child immunisation. The study found that all these concepts are closely related with each other. There are different dimensions of mother’s health and autonomy. the study further finds that mother’s health and autonomy, especially, influences the level of child immunisation along with some other socioeconomic factors like mother’s education, age, employment status, parity, sex of the child etc.  JEL Classification: I1, I15
