Mass polio vaccine campaign launched after Iraq case
 
https://s2.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/6...e3495247eb.jpgAuthorities launched a massive polio vaccination campaign on Sunday in Iraq, Syria and Egypt after health officials found a suspected case of the virus in a young boy near Baghdad. The five-day campaign aims to vaccinate more than 20 million children, including 5.6 million in Iraq alone, UNICEF said, with confirmed cases in conflict-hit neighbouring Syria having sparked a region-wide alert. "Polio eradication is a global priority," UNICEF's representative in Iraq Marzio Babille said in a statement. "I appeal to the people of Iraq to join hands in ensuring every child under the age of five is vaccinated during the upcoming April polio campaign, regardless of how many doses they've received previously." Last month, Iraq's health ministry said it found a case of polio in a young boy in Bab al-Sham, near Baghdad, the country's first such case in 14 years.
