Sending 900,000 cholera vaccines for Rohingyas in Cox’s Bazar

RAJIB SHARMA, CHITTAGONG: An international group on vaccine provision will send 900,000 Oral Cholera Vaccines or OCVs to prevent water-borne diseases from spreading in Rohingyas camps in Cox’s Bazar.

The International Coordinating Group (ICG) decided to release the vaccines from the global stockpile within 24 hours of getting a request from the Bangladesh government on Wednesday, World Health Organization or WHO said on Friday.

UNICEF, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), and the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) also coordinated the mechanism in releasing the medicine along with WHO, the global health agency said in a statement.
