Kabul (BNA) This Monday, polio vaccination teams will visit 6.4 million children under the age of five in 27 high-risk provinces, mainly in Kandahar and Nangarhar, BNA reported.
This follows several new cases in both regions. Last week, a 14-month-old boy from Loyawala was confirmed to have polio and will be permanently paralyzed. This is the 14th case in Afghanistan, and the 9th case in the southern region.
In Afghanistan, the efforts for polio eradication have been intensified more than ever. The Ministry of Public Health and its health partners are committed to ending this disease. But what we need is the solid commitment and necessary cooperation of the community. If the community do not cooperate with us, we will not be able to reach every child with lifesaving polio vaccine. Whenever a child misses the vaccine, they can be impacted by polio. I request all parents, community leaders, Mullah Imam of the mosques and tribal elders to cooperate with vaccinators to ensure that all children are vaccinated and protected against this permanent paralyzing disease. I would also like to remind everyone that the vaccine is safe,” said the Minister of Public Health Dr. Ferozuddin Feroz.
The vaccination campaign will take place from 24 - 28 September 2018.  Parents should ensure their children are home and available to be vaccinated.  All children under five should receive the polio vaccine, including newborns, sleeping, sick, and visiting children.  Children who miss the vaccination should visit their local health center as soon as possible, where the vaccine is available free of charge. The polio vaccine is safe, even for sick and newborn children. It is very important these children get the vaccine, because they have lower immunity which makes them more susceptible to the virus. Repeated vaccination is very important for children because it builds their immunity to the virus.
“Vaccinating your child against polio is the responsibility and obligation of every Muslim. The prominent Islamic Scholars and Reliable Islamic References from Afghanistan and globally have issued Fatwas on the importance of vaccination against polio.  If parents do not vaccinate their children as a result of negligence and undue propaganda, they are actually committing a great sin and injustice against their innocent children,” said Mawlawi Samiullah Raihan.
Polio is a crippling and a potentially fatal infectious disease. There is no cure and the polio vaccine is the only safe and effective way to protect children. All children should be vaccinated against polio during each campaign, until they reach the age of five. House-to-house vaccination is the only way to achieve polio eradication because it means every child has access to vaccination. This strategy has been implemented in all countries that have managed to eradicate the virus.
Currently, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria are the only three remaining polio-endemic countries in the world.

Commentary

Sunday, September 23, 2018

Kabul (BNA) September 20th is the world peace day, celebrates in time violence, war, suicide, terror, poverty and migration suffer the world community more than ever.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes the world peace day celebrates across the world while the humanity is suffering from problems and hardships caused by adventurous and unwise policies of powerful and totalitarian countries.
Today peace is a lost word or term for Afghan, Syrian, Iraqi and some other people across the world. The countries, whose people are burning in the flames of rivalries and hatred of big powers, enjoy peace and stability only in their dreams.
The word of peace, for Afghan people who have expired more than forty years of their live in violence and war    is an ideal word and eagerly waiting for its restoration, but violence and war still taking victims from of suffering people.
Armed violence and problems in Afghanistan have their roots abroad and certain countries have changed Afghanistan in to the battlefront of their secret wars, choking the throats of Afghan people taken the idea of peace hostage for their political games while Afghans scarify every day for restoration of peace and security in to their country.
If we precisely look at the events of the last forty years, we will find out that the world and regional powers involved in problem of Afghanistan have so far used the word of peace as a slogan and continue their rivalries in this war torn country to achieve their objectives.
Addressing the Afghan people we say that it is an irrefutable fact that the current violence in their country deeply rooted abroad and knew that their country has changed in to the battle field of proxy war launched by other countries, then why our people accept this imposed horrible situation while we know about peace from the verses of Holy Quran.  Therefore, we should disseminate peace as a culture in the community, understand the demands of aliens and take firm steps for ending the violence and interferences of foreign countries in domestic affairs of our country.
Peace is not an easy subject to be discussed; it is a process that should be followed with patient.
Likewise, the authorities of state, politicians, critics of the state, even opposition groups who cry the slogan of peace should know that hitting this target    needs true action and that peace is not just a slogan but is the right of every man that should be honored and observed and act with high responsibility for its restoration.
