The presence of the Aedes aegypti mosquito in the country, particularly in urban and peri-urban areas is high. This, combined with ongoing structural and financial issues in the country, have exacerbated already poor sanitation conditions, and increased the risk of Yellow Fever spreading throughout the country. The Minister of Health has reported vaccination shortages and the Government and WHO are taking steps to try to address this.
This project contributes to the control of the Yellow Fever outbreak in Angola by addressing the immediate risk of the disease in the affected areas, and in particular targeting 90,000 people in the Viana province with community mobilisation and (post) vaccination support over a period of three months.
This operation aims at Community Mobilisation (60,000) and Vaccination Campaign (30,000).
