UNICEF: Second round of Child Health Days in Somalia
« on: December 18, 2010, 07:59:25 PM »
<a href="" target="_blank"></a>GABILEY, Northwest Somalia, 3 September 2009 Building on the success of the six-month-long Child Health Days initiative that began late last year, UNICEF and the World Health Organization (WHO) have kicked off the second round of a campaign to reach every Somali community with a life-saving package of essential services for children and women. More than 50 local and international partner organizations are participating in this massive undertaking. In August, some 5000 trained health workers launched the renewed drive in Somaliland, north-west Somalia. Mobile teams used donkeys and camels as modes of transport to remote, mountainous areas that vehicles cant reach. Child Health Days boost immunization rates and promote child and maternal health. The campaign in Somalia aims to raise awareness about the importance of immunization and health services for children and women, and encourage communities to take an active role in safeguarding childrens right to quality care.
