    The Afghan Public Health Ministry launched a five-day nationwide immunity vaccination campaign on Monday targeting 9.9 million children under the age of five, the Ministry said in a statement. During the campaign, which is supported by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), vitamin A capsules will also be given to over 8.9 million children aged between six months and five years, Xinhua news agency reported. "Vitamin A helps to build a child's immunity and reduces the risk of diarrhea, respiratory infections and measles. It also improves a child's chance of survival by 12-24 per cent," the statement read. The drive was launched after a fresh polio case was detected in Afghanistan in late June, taking the number of confirmed polio virus cases, since January 2018, to nine.
