위험한 상황을 뚫고 벌이는 홍역예방접종 캠페인

2007.04.30
* Despite dangers, measles vaccinators fan out across Iraq * 23 Apr 2007 Amongst the uncertainty and violence that is life for so many in Iraq these days; a team of vaccinators is embarking on an ambitious campaign to protect children from measles. During the two week operation, which is being supported by UNICEF, the World Health organization as well as being financed by the European Commission, some 8 thousand vaccinators will be deployed around the country in the hopes of reaching the 1 million Iraqi children who are currently open to possible infection. At centres such as these, parents crowd in, eager to have their children immunized against the disease that could leave them severely ill or worse, dead. Just one shot is enough to protect most of these children for life. In areas where security is most unstable, vaccinators move door to door explaining to parents the importance of immunizations and marking each house as they move on, a sign to all that the children here have been protected against measles. The importance of this on the ground work cannot be understated; many of these families do not have the ability to go to health centres due to the violence and insecurity that is gripping their nation. Parents, children and vaccinators alike will all face challenges during this campaign, but they know with every vaccination another child is protected from disease.
