HA NOI (VNS) — The Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA) has provided health workers with 40,000 T-shirts for promoting the Ministry of Health's nation-wide measles-rubella vaccination campaign.

The campaign has been implementing from mid of September and February 2015, targeting all 23 million children aged from 1 to 14 year old.

The campaign aims to eliminate measles in Viet Nam by 2017 and minimise the number of children born with congenital rubella syndrome (CRS) due to their mothers' infection of rubella virus during the first three months of pregnancy. — VNS
