Riding a camel through a sandstorm, a traditional welcome for UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Mia Farrow in the central African country of Chad. She spent a week travelling across the country to highlight the importance of polio vaccination ahead as part of a regional immunisation campaign to combat the spread of this debilitating disease. She met local authorities and teams of volunteers, supported by UNICEF and WHO reaching out to communities in rural and urban areas to encourage parents to have their children vaccinated.


Whilst being interviewed at the local radio station in the impoverished western town of Mao, Ms Farrow sent out this message to communities:


SOT: Mia Farrow UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador (English)
"So I've come here as a mother, as a grandmother and as an ambassador for UNICEF to tell all the women and the fathers too, to be sure to bring their babies in to be vaccinated."


Routine polio immunisation is low in Chad with only an estimated 20 percent of children covered, leaving hundreds of thousands vulnerable to the virus.


SOT Dr Marzio Babille UNICEF Representative (English)
"Usually it's a permanent crippling disease. The child is usually marginalizedand has a very difficult life if he goes to school and obviously sometimes as we witness in Africa, and in Chad, these children become beggars."


Chad is one of the poorest countries in Africa with around 60 percent of the population living on less than a dollar a day. Poverty, poor nutrition, overcrowding and lack of sanitation leave children more susceptible to the polio infection. The virus is highly contagious and for every child affected another 200 are infected.


Chad was almost polio free in 2006, but the virus re entered nations in west and central Africa following migration from neighbouring Nigeria. Since 2009, 67 new cases have been registered in Chad. This has triggered the need for a regional polio vaccination campaign targeting 19 countries in West and Central Africa to intensify efforts.


SOT Gianfranco Rotigliano UNICEF Regional Director for Central and West Africa (English)
"So it is important that we vaccinate at the same time throughout the region so that we try to stop transmission."


During the launch of Chad's polio immunisation campaign in the capital N'djamena on March 6th, Chadian President Idriss Deby Itno renewed his commitment to fighting polio. Vaccination teams supported by UNICEF and WHO will reach to over 2 million children under the age of five. It's hoped this massive effort will give a boost t
