Bonthe District Chairman Urges Residents to Support the MR Campaign

The district Council Chairman for Bonthe District, Moses Probyn has urged residents and stakeholders of his districts to not only  support  but to also own the Measles Rubella Vaccination Campaign, as it is geared to the health of their children; thereby saving lives.
Chairman Probyn made the plea at the District Launch of the Integrated Measles Rubella Vaccination Campaign on Monday 10th June at the Bonthe District Council Hall Mattru Jong.  

While making his statement at the launch, Mr. Probyn reiterated that if their district was to actualize their target of reaching every children with the lifesaving interventions in the district, adding that the Ministry of Health and Sanitation would not succeed without their support for which he called on all stakeholders to fully support the campaign for the district to emerge as the best district in the entire campaign.

He further noted that the campaign is not only about the usual Measles, Polio, Vitamin A &Albendazole but it is also about a new disease known as Rubella for which their children were going to be vaccinated against.

He continued that if all their children were to be reached it counts on all their efforts and support, as 1 case of Measles or Rubella is a concern thus puts other children at high risk of contracting the diseases as it is caused by sneeze or cough in the air by an affected person.

He admonished stakeholders no to associate the campaign to any rumours, misconceptions that would otherwise hamper the success of the campaign and that they were now in the correct position to address issues of rumours, misconceptions and myths in their communities.

Mr. Probyn ended by thanking the Ministry of Health and Sanitation and Government and health partners for their efforts in ensuring that their children are prevented against these childhood diseases, which would otherwise claim their lives if they are not  prevented
