The national Measles and Rubella campaign

The national Measles and Rubella campaign, which aimed to protect some 17 million children across Myanmar, was a tremendous success! The mobilisation of nurses, teachers and countless community leaders has resulted in an excellent coverage- around 95% nation-wide.

Even in areas of conflict and intercommunal tensions such as Rakhine and Kachin States, unprecedented engagement of health and education workers and community leaders helped to reach levels comparable to the national average.
