World Polio Day - What does it take to protect every child against polio?
The Journey of Two Drops
Reaching every child to #ENDPolio
After a decade of being polio-free, in 2019, a case of polio was diagnosed in a young girl. Since then, the Government of Ghana has teamed up with UNICEF and the World Health Organization to undertake several rounds of polio vaccination across the country. Polio is an infectious viral disease that can be prevented with vaccines.
Together, various teams are going the distance, travelling rough and remote terrains to ensure that every child is reached with life-saving vaccines and educating families on how ti prevent the spread of the disease.
No child should die from a disease that can be prevented.
