Afghanistan Is Finally Working To Fix Their Polio Problem
An Afghani woman holds her child up during a vaccination campaign in Kabul. The Ministry of Public Health, alongside UNICEF and WHO (the World Health Organization) worked together to launch a vaccine campaign to ensure every child under the age of 5 in Afghanistan was vaccinated for Polio.
The campaign lasted for four days and aimed to vaccinate 9.5 million children, including those without homes. Polio is a crippling disease that many young people cannot live through. Afghanistan and Pakistan are the only two countries who still have an issue with Polio, but thankfully they are finally fighting against it.
