While most areas of India are today polio-free, a new outbreak centered in and around the Moradabad district, western Uttar Pradesh, is increasing the risk of further national and international spread of polio. Specific actions are being taken to urgently address the outbreak, including conducting large-scale polio immunization activities. To be successful, social mobilization tools are needed. These tools are provided by PolioPlus Partners.
COMMUNICATE when and where polio immunization activities will occur with advertisements, media and posters. IDENTIFY health workers and volunteers with caps and aprons. REWARD children and parents with incentives to encourage participation.
The project will help educate millions of Indian families on how to protect their children from contracting polio, and will provide essential tools to thousands of volunteers and health workers to conduct high-quality polio immunization activities.
