Yellow fever shots for millions

The Sudanese Government and aid agencies are making progress in their attempts to halt the spread of mosquito-borne yellow fever and immunize 6 million people in Darfur, despite funding and logistical challenges.

More than 700 people contracted the disease and 165 have died in what the World Health Organization (WHO) says is the worst outbreak of the disease since at least 1990.
