Published by UNICEFGuinea
This weekend, the Government of Guinea, the World Health Organization, and UNICEF completed a vaccination campaign in the country’s Eastern Region where a recent meningitis outbreak has already caused at least 52 deaths since the beginning of the year.

The campaign, which reached over 95 per cent of those aged one to 29 living in the affected areas of Mandiana and Siguiri, lasted for six days. UNICEF and partners reached close to 1,153,000 people. Additionally, local teams have conducted an information campaign on rural radio and through direct community sensitization in gathering places to educate the population about the dangers of meningitis to children and to provide details on the locations of vaccination centres. Furthermore, the cold chain, which keeps the vaccines viable, was strengthened.
