350,000 Ivory Coast Children to Be Vaccinated Against Measles
Agence France Presse;


As part of a 10-day effort, about 350,000 children in Ivory Coast will receive vaccinations against measles. Statistics show that there were 7,600 cases of the disease in Ivory Coast in 2002, and UNICEF has expressed concern about children in some regions of the country that no longer had access to health services. UNICEF estimates that $6 million is needed to vaccinate all Ivory Coast children between the ages of six months and 14 years against the disease.
