Center to seek global assistance to boost vaccination system
The center government is reportedly trying to attain the global funding and technical assistance to boost the national-wide vaccination drive. As the country is planning to introduce advanced vaccination system through the UIP, Universal Immunization Program, it must need advanced technology and more funds to strengthen the mission. Reports say that the authorities had already requested support from the global health agencies. They are desperately expecting technical support rather than financial assistance, report added. Meanwhile, a global agency had recently offered a fund of around five-hundred million dollars to support the Indian Immunization Drive. The organizations like UNICEF and WHO is working in the immunization program in India; and they are providing proper guidance to the state heath authorities. Recently, UNICEF had roped in the Bollywood icons like Amitabh Bachhan and Priyanka Chopra as the ambassadors to spread the immunization awareness among the rural India population. UNICEF played an inevitable part to eradicate the polio virus from the country. It is currently concentrated in the special vaccination program to eradicate the Hepatitis disease. Meanwhile, the health authorities are currently planning to introduce the Inactive Polio Vaccine program along with the traditional oral vaccination; it will further improve the vaccination system. However, the new improved vaccination process is expected to reduce the mortality rate from those diseases, which can be prevented by the vaccination.
