22-nation synchronized immunization campaign to reach 100 million children as virus spreads to Ethiopia
A mass polio immunization drive starting today across Africa gained greater urgency from reports that a child has contracted polio in Ethiopia, the first case there in four years.
The cross-continental drive - spanning 22 countries and reaching 100 million children - is the first in a series of 2005 campaigns to stamp out polio in Africa, which saw a fierce resurgence last year endangering global eradication efforts.
