Rubella vaccine

What is Rubella?
Rubella is a mild viral infection that mainly occurs in children. But a woman infected with the rubella virus during the early stage of pregnancy has a 90% chance of transmitting it to the foetus. The virus can cause hearing impairments, eye and heart defects and brain damage in newborns, and even spontaneous abortion and foetal deaths.

Why is the measles-rubella vaccine being administered to children? Why opt for a campaign? Is it possible to achieve the goal by 2020?
