Dow University holds awareness seminar
KARACHI: Vaccination is every child’s right and there is a need to raise awareness regarding immunisation to reduce infant mortality rate and achieve the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 4, Sindh Health Secretary Dr Hashim Raza Zaidi said while addressing an Immunisation Awareness seminar at Arag Auditorium, Dow University of Health Sciences.

The seminar was arranged in collaboration with UNICEF Pakistan and Sindh Expanded Programme for Immunisation under the auspices of Child Survival Programme and Paediatric Unit, Civil Hospital Karachi, Health Department and Sindh government.

UNICEF Pakistan’s Mohamed Cisse in his address said that MDG 4 was to reduce child mortality by two-third from 1990 to 2015, adding a strong immunisation programme could annually save more than 150,000 children under the age of five. Daily times
