WHO battles world's largest measles outbreak

Oct 01, 2019 16:53 IST

To help tackle the world's largest measles outbreak, the World Health Organisation launched an emergency vaccination campaign in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The campaign will be targeting over eight lakh children. UNICEF is procuring and distributing vaccines, and keeping them safe through cold chain logistics. WHO has established a measles response advocacy committee to mobilize partners and donors in a joint effort to control the outbreak.
