Pulse Polio Program Restarted in Jharkhand

This is a short information why pulse polio program was restarted in Jharkhand

With the development and awareness, we really worked out best to eradicate polio from the state, Jharkhand. We thought that the disease called polio has been completely eradicated and there was a justifiable reason to this prediction done by the people and the government, and the reason was that in last couple of years, there had been no cases identified for polio. In other words, no child was known to possess this disease in the last few years, and the last known case was identified in 2006.

However, last week, a child was identified with this disease in the state and it made chaos among the health experts of this state. However, the program which had almost been stopped because of no identification, has been restarted now in Jharkhand with an aim to eradicate polio completely from our lives as it destroys lives. Well, this program will be conducted in many districts of the state.

Alone in Chatra, 2,02,719 are estimated to be dosed with pulse polio drops to save their lives from getting miserable. The children will be from 5 years and above. To achieve this aim, alone at Chatra 773 pulse polio booths have been installed and also about 3188 people for vaccinating have been appointed. To complete the project with success, 163 supervisors have also been appointed to work out for the cause. This will be a three day program starting from 10th of January, 2010.

So, lets work out together, to combat pulse polio once again.
