Zimbabwe's largest immunization and child health day campaign was launched last Monday in Harare.


The aim is to reach 5 million children under the age of 15 with basic childhood immunizations over the course ten days.


Emphasis is on the measles vaccine - a move necessitated by the recent outbreak that claimed nearly 400 lives.


SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Peter Salama, UNICEF Representative in Zimbabwe:
"We have today 7,000 cases of measles in Zimbabwe and almost 400 deaths - completely preventable disease."


In addition, children receive vitamin A supplementation and have an opportunity to catch up on routine immunizations against polio, diphtheria, pertusis and tetanus.


The campaign comes while the county continues to grapple with multiple challenges - particularly in the area of health. Immunization coverage has fallen sharply in recent years and there has been a significant rise in maternal mortality.


SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Henry Madzorera, Minister of Health and Child Welfare:
"This large scale programme therefore compels to uphold all Zimbabweans to contribute to its success."


UNICEF and partners have committed support to ensure adequate vaccines, logistical assistance and trained staff, particularly in reaching remote areas.


Community outreach activities have been intensified to prompt parents to bring their children to immunization points.


These designated places include hospitals, clinics, community centers, churches and schools.


In the more remote places, Outreach Facilities enable health workers to go door to door with the immunizations.


SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Custodia Mandlate, WHO Representative
"I want to publicly thank all the donors that came in response to our resource mobilization efforts including CERF (Consolidated Emergency Relief Fund) ECHO, DFID and other traditional donors for immunization programmes."


Led by the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare and supported by UNICEF, WHO and Hellen Keller International, these national health days are an important strategy towards improving the lives of children in Zimbabwe.
