This survey was conducted as part of the Gavi Full Country Evaluation (FCE) project in Bangladesh. Gavi FCEs are prospective studies covering the period 2013-2016 that aim to assess the barriers to and drivers of immunization program performance. The Bangladesh FCE focused on selected locations stratified by urban/rural and low/high immunization coverage performance areas. It was conducted in one rural district and one city corporation each in the divisions of Sylhet and Rajshahi. This survey collected information at the household level prior to the implementation of a measles-rubella vaccine campaign. It covered sociodemographic characteristics; knowledge, treatment and management of measles and rubella; vaccination status of children (including immunization card documentation); and access to vaccination services and experience at health facilities. In a sub-sample of children, a small amount of blood was collected in order to measure vaccine presence. In total, 1,735 households were sampled.
