The United Nations Children’s Fund and Sokoto State Government plan to adopt new strategies in 2018 to increase access to immunisation across the state.

UNICEF Chief Field Officer in Sokoto, Mouhuiddin Mohammed, lamented that the current response to polio and other vaccination across the state had remained “frustrating’’ in spite of efforts to provide quality service to the populace.

He stated this during the mid-year review meeting on UNICEF-State Government Annual Work Plan, 2017.

According to him, very low turnout of women and children for immunisation remains the greatest challenge which must be tackled.

Mohammed said, “Community response is very frustrating, because in the health centres, everything is there. We provide vaccines; other partners provide their vaccines, and they are free. But the behaviour of the people is not remarkable. If they do not bring their children, what will the workers do?’’
