Doctors to Immunize Children in Kashmir


November 13, 2005

by Kevin Caruso

Doctors in Kashmir are rushing to immunize 800,000 children before winter. Many children are highly vulnerable to disease because of squalid conditions and malnutrition.

The children in remote mountain villages that are isolated from landslides are among the most vulnerable to malnutrition and disease.

The immunizations administered will include measles, tetanus, whooping cough, diphtheria and polio.

“We're doing everything we can to immunize every child in the region," said Dr. Tamur Mueenuddin, director of health issues for UNICEF in Muzaffarabad. "The target is to immunize 800,000 children. We want to vaccinate them in the next two weeks, weather permitting, before people get into close quarters in camps."
