Congo polio immunisation campaign gets go ahead.

Abstract:

:Since the World Health Organization (WHO) set a goal in 1988 of eradicating polio worldwide by 2000, the incidence of the disease has declined by 90% around the world, with national immunization days conducted in more than 120 countries. More than 450 million children were immunized in 1998 alone. Now, with only about 5000 annual cases of polio occurring, complete eradication can be achieved. To that end, and in a first-ever initiative, the heads of the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF, jointly appealed to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan for help in bringing immunization against polio to children in war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo. Mr. Annan subsequently announced an initiative to negotiate several special ceasefire agreements in Congo so that approximately 10 million children under age 5 years can be immunized against poliomyelitis during July-September 1999. Both the president of Congo, Laurent Kabila, and rebel leaders have given their preliminary assurances that weapons will be laid down while Congolese children are sought out and vaccinated. A joint WHO-UNICEF planning mission will travel to Kinshasa in April to advise the Congolese Ministry of Health, which has main responsibility for the areas under governmental control. The $15 million project is expected to cover 3 rounds of immunization to bring population immunity to the highest possible level.
