Kano lists 3.6 million children for polio immunisation January

Published

on

Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has said that over 3.6 million children will be immunised against polio under the Maternal Newborn and Child Health Week January campaign.

This was contained in a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Deputy Governor, Hassan Fagge, issued in Kano on Monday.

The MNCHW will be conducted alongside the outbreak response exercise, where personnel will go from house to house to immunise children below five years against poliovirus.

The governor, who was represented by his deputy, Dr. Nasiru Gawuna, disclosed this on Sunday at the Ungogo Local Government Area during the commencement of the OBR1 and MNCHW January campaign in the state.

“The aim of the Maternal Newborn and Child Health Week is to improve the health care services for pregnant women and their children,” he said.

Ganduje explained that the state government was committed to providing adequate health care services to the people, stressing that it would not relent in ensuring that pregnant women attended antenatal care in hospitals across the state.

The governor appreciated the Federal Government, local government chairmen, emirate councils and development partners for their commitment to sustaining the hard fought gains and therefore urged them to consolidate on the success recorded during the exercise.

On his part, the Commissioner for Health, Dr Aminu Tsanyawa, urged parents to cooperate with immunisation personnel towards ensuring the success of the exercise.
