Health drive finally eradicating Polio in India

Give Giving a Go can exclusively reveal that 172 million children have been vaccinated by more than 2.5 million vaccinators during a national "Polio Sunday drive" and ‘if no new cases of Polio are recorded by the end of 2013, then India will be officially considered polio-free’, said Roshanak Taghavi, correspondent for Johns Hopkins University's International Reporting Project.

‘Teams were stationed first at booths and then travelled for five days around the country, administering vaccines door-to-door throughout city slums, housing projects, and rural villages. They even administered vaccines at bus stops, train stations, and cultural festivals’, continued Roshanak.

Stunted growth due to under nutrition is slowly being eradicated, but not for long.

Stunted growth, which is linked to children’s nutrition, is slowly being eradicated thanks to a current UNICEF initiative in developing countries, and is hoped that the project success is to be accelerated.

‘Our evidence of the progress that is being achieved shows that now is the time to accelerate it”, said UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake in the recent report ‘Improving Child Nutrition: The achievable imperative for global progress’ 

UNICEF who has projects in 190 countries and territories to help: children survive and thrive, from early childhood through adolescence, through health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS, has been running this program for over 10 years. It aims to help the health and lives of children under the age of five who suffer from stunted growth. “Stunting can kill opportunities in life for a child and kill opportunities for development of a nation,” continued Anthony Lake.
