Summary
This compendium of rubella and CRS articles is designed to tell the story of measles, rubella, and CRS elimination and compiles all the articles published on these diseases in the PAHO/WHO Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) Newsletter, now the Immunization Newsletter. The objective of this publication is to document the regional experience. In particular, it aims to convey to countries and other regions of the world the lessons learned, along with experiences gained from other vaccines-preventable disease elimination initiatives and best practices developed.

The compendium also attempts to pay graphic and written tribute to the legion of men and women- health workers and volunteers-who have contributed to measles and rubella elimination through their work in and with communities, even under unfavorable circumstances. Without their persistence, dedication, and unwavering determination, the initiative could not have moved forward.
