First round of Oral Polio Vaccination (OPV) campaign for 2018



Every child deserves safe and effective immunization; therefore, no child should be left behind as all barriers must be broken in ensuring the set target is achieved. As a result of this, NSTOP supported the first round of Oral Polio Vaccination (OPV) campaign for 2018 which was held in 13 high risk states. One hundred and one (101) management support teams (MSTs) were deployed by NSTOP to support the exercise.


The MSTs worked in mainly hard-to-reach and nomadic settlements. To reduce the number of children missed during such exercises due to various reasons, advocacy visits were conducted to ward heads and district heads to garner their supports.
Findings from the field revealed a thorough exercise was conducted and communities were combed as guides were provided by some ward heads.
